    In this July 27, 2014 file photo provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows Tashfeen Malik, left, and Syed Farook, as they passed through O'Hare International Airport in Chicago. The husband and wife died on Dec. 2, 2015, in a gun battle with authorities several hours after their assault on a gathering of Farook's colleagues in San Bernardino, Calif.

    The latest issue of an English-language ISIS magazine calls the British intelligence agency MI-5 "much-overrated," applauds the San Bernardino mass murder, and offers a profile of the deceased executioner known as "Jihadi John."

    The terror attack in San Bernardino is praised at the beginning of this issue of Dabiq, but there are no new details about the attack and connections to ISIS, NBC News reported.

    In reference to San Bernardino suspects Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, who were killed in a shootout with police, the magazine says "not only did they leave behind their comfortable lifestyle, but prior to the operation they left their baby daughter in the care of others knowing that they likely wouldn't see her again in this life."

    The attacks in Paris are also referenced with pictures of the killers superimposed on images from the crime scenes.
