Born: 18 April 1993;
Place of Birth: Toronto, Canada;

Shirdon, known as Abu Usama al Somali, left Canada on 14 March 2014 to join and fight with the Islamic State in Syria.
Shirdon is a Canadian citizen who travelled to Iraq and Syria to fight with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
He served in a combat role and performed other functions for ISIS such as recruiting, fundraising, encouraging others to commit violence, and spreading propaganda – all designed to enhance the activities of the ISIS.
The Islamic State wasted no time in using Shirdon in its propaganda. In a video released online just a few months after he absconded from Canada, Shirdon was shown burning his passport.
Shirdon also threatened the US, Canada and President Barack Obama. “We are coming, and we will destroy you.”
He also threatened New York, claiming that “brothers” were “mobilizing” for a “brilliant attack.”
