ISIS Says Its Leader Was Killed In Combat, Appoints New One

File image.

In a surprise announcement on November 30, ISIS said that its top leader Abu al-Hasan al-Hashimi al-Qurashi had been killed.

In an audio message titled “They Kill and Get Killed,” a spokesman for the terrorist group said that al-Hashimi, an Iraqi national, was killed “in combat with enemies of God”, without elaborating on when or where this took place.

The spokesman identified the terrorist group’s new “caliph” as Abu al-Hussein al-Husseini al-Qurashi. As of now, next to nothing is known about the man.

Abu al-Hasan succeeded Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi who died during a U.S. raid that targeted his hideout in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib on February 3. Al-Qurashi assumed the leadership of the terrorist group after the death of the founder and first leader Abu Baker al-Baghdadi, who was killed during a U.S. raid in Greater Idlib on 26 October 2019.

The White House welcomed the news of Abu al-Hasan death, without confirming or denying any direct involvement by the U.S.

Abu al-Hasan was not likely killed by the U.S. No major counter-terrorism operations by the U.S.-led coalition or its allies and proxies were reported in Syria or Iraq in recent weeks.

The leader may have been in fact killed by Syrian government forces, who recently carried out a series of operations against ISIS cells in the southern governorate of Daraa. Many senior commanders of the terrorist group, including Iraqi nationals, were killed in these operations. The largest and most recent of the operations targeted a major stronghold of the terrorist group in Daraa city. It was concluded only on November 15.

The death of Abu al-Hasan was, without a doubt, a major blow to ISIS. Losing two leaders in less than a year indicates that the terrorist group command is suffering from serious security issues.

“in battle with God’s enemies”

This fantasy god must be powerless if she is unable to deal with her enemies.

It’s cowardly to use insane illiterates to do the crap jobs for her.

I guess they were able to locate Ibrahim Al Bagdadi much earlier but spared him to lure radical international Muslims from all over the world into Syria and Iraq to kill them there. Something was wrong with ISIS, many said it, analysts, life-long experts on the middle east etc. Likely at least in part a CIA + Mossad operation with true Muslim believers among them – to be slaughtered. You know, they desperately needed to end the seemingly endless “War On Terror” narrative to attend other enemies like Russia and China, so they invented ISIS to kill a few ten thousand radical Muslims from all over the world, their respective own countries and here we are. Ukraine. Tomorrow it’s China or a whole world war.

Al Bagdadi was killed 6 times before they finally buried him in the media archive. They are just changing names for new news and psy-ops.

Perhaps he was killed in a car accident in Langley? Still, plenty more cutouts in the drawer. The US/nato/isreali farce continues.

If their leaders were really killed there’d be a whole lot of dead Israelis and jerks in the US government.
