U.S.-led Coalition Eliminates ISIS Spokesman In Turkish-Occupied Northern Syria

Support SouthFront

The U.S.-led coalition and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have eliminated ISIS spokesman Abul-Hasan al-Muhajir inside the Turkish-occupied Euphrates Shield (ES) region in northern Aleppo, the SDF’s commander-in-chief announced on October 25.

“Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, the right-hand of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and ISIS spokesman, was targeted in the village of Ein al-Baydah near Jarabulus, in direct coordination between the SDF intelligence and the U.S. military,” Ferhat Abdi Şahin wrote on Twitter.

The Kurdish commander, who is known by his nom de guerre “Mazlum Abdi,” added that the operation was a part of the ongoing work to pursue ISIS leaders.

Abul-Hasan Al-Muhajir was appointed as the ISIS main spokesman on December 5, 2016. The terrorist succeeded Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, who was killed while visiting the Aleppo frontlines in Syria in August of the same year.

Sources in the ES region confirmed that an oil tanker smuggling several ISIS members was struck by warplanes south of Jarabulus. At least three terrorists were killed in the airstrike. A fourth terrorist survived, but was captured by Turkish-backed fighters.

The U.S.-led coalition has not confirmed the SDF’s claims, so far. Turkey, which controls the region where the airstrike took place, is yet to comment on the matter.

If confirmed, the assassination of al-Muhajir would be another blow to ISIS, which lost its leader Abu Baker al-Baghdadi a day earlier in a U.S. raid on northern Idlib.

    So strange, Everybody is hunting for Daesh leadership inside Turkish controlled safe zones.

    1. FlorianGeyer says:

      It appears that the US and Turkey are both seeking to bury the evidence of their association with ISIS :)

      The Kurdish leadership should be rather worried as well. The US is casting off her whores.

      1. Karen Bartlett says:

        Maybe. If any of these corpses are who they say they are.

        1. FlorianGeyer says:

          There is something fishy in all of this.
          The US helicopter ‘capture’ of high ranking ISIS in Jarabalous on the border with Turkey the other day seems like an ‘extraction ‘ of US assets to me.

          1. Karen Bartlett says:

            Hm. Interesting observation. I don’t know about such things, not having been in the military, but I assume you have. (Don’t answer if you don’t want.)

    2. BMWA1 says:

      Most puzzling. I’m baffled!

      1. Karen Bartlett says:

        i think one of the maxims of detectives when investigating is: if it doesn’t make sense, it’s a lie.

    3. Luke Hemmming says:

      Good point. Also may i add that it is strange that they are hunting Daesh leadership NOW, when they should have been doing it a long time ago. Oh that’s right they needed them alive so they had an excuse to prolong the war for as long as they could to maximize profits for the MIC.

      1. Karen Bartlett says:

        Besides, the US was training, arming and paying them.

    4. Dicksonrp says:

      Relax.. Simon Elliot is alive and well in tel Aviv while you all are sweeting over US lies. The US can never kill a jew. The talmud forbids a GOYIM to do so.

  2. Lazy Gamer says:

    The terrorists should have known that when Trump ordered the army’s pullback, their usefulness suddenly changed to PR stunt/throwaway chip. How could the terrorists live out in the open and not in tunnels or holes if not for someone choosing not to act in the information?
    Another terrorist commander personally trained in the prisons of the Coalition has now given his final media performance.

    1. Karen Bartlett says:

      Perhaps a commander. Could have been some random terrorist, or even a civilian.

  3. Rodney Loder says:

    This seems to have escalated into taking the life of Brother Baghdadi, I’ve had no word from my Companions in Heaven that he has joined their illustrations ranks, so I guess it must be a fishy story.

    Now hearken everyone, listen up, listen up !! I once fed the 5,000 Matthew : 14 ; 13 – 21, but why have you deserted me said number 5,001, hummm – do you think credibility goes on forever said the empty paper bag, here have a few chips that should tie you over till it’s possible to believe in the US 21 st. Century.

  4. ColinNZ says:

    The US will have to stay in Syria for years because that’s how long it will take to get rid of all the incriminating evidence.

    1. Karen Bartlett says:

      Heh. Yeah, meanwhile they’re busy stealing all the oil they can as well. I wonder if US soldiers, who by now know why the US is in the country, will be considered ‘incriminating evidence”?

  5. RichardD says:

    Until I see credible evidence to the contrary, like bodies, I’ll go with the Russians on this one. It likely never happened and is just Zionist Yinon plan Hegelian theater. AKA bulls—.

  7. RichardD says:

    The only thing that the “evidence” provided proves. Is that the US isn’t releasing any credible evidence. For obvious reasons. Because it’s all a scam.

    1. PZIVJ says:

      There is solid evidence of an operation west of Barisha. But we do not know was there.
      If you want results of DNA test and biometric scans, you should contact:
      http://www.I want classified information.CIA.GOV :)

      1. RichardD says:

        Evidence of exactly what? Somebody is lying, do you think that it’s the Americans or the Russians?

        The US wasn’t shy when they wanted to prove a point, when they don’t you get evasion and fiction, like in this case. There are operations 24/7/365 in Syria. Evidence of an operation is meaningless without evidence of the purported targets, of which there is zilch. The whole thing is a charade. The terrorists with few exceptions are intel marionettes. Even if they don’t know it. And are expendable on an as needed basis. The entire war on terror is Hegelian theater.

        1. PZIVJ says:

          So you now really on Tweets for evidence? Here is another quote:
          ” saying that it didn’t register any American aerial missions in Syria’s Idlib province where the raid is said to have taken place”
          Perhaps the term “register” was lost in translation.

          1. RichardD says:

            I don’t see any difference, do you?

            “Russia’s Defense Ministry has questioned Washington’s claims of eliminating al-Baghdadi, saying that it didn’t register any American aerial missions in Syria’s Idlib province where the raid is said to have taken place.”

          2. PZIVJ says:

            And of course to register for something, this means you sign up before hand.
            Is your legal dictionary biting you in the ass right now?

          3. RichardD says:

            Your reply doesn’t make sense. The register that the Russians are talking about is that it didn’t show up on their radar screens. Not that the US didn’t request permission to carry out the raid.

          4. PZIVJ says:

            Deconflict airspace agreement, to provide prior notice of flights.

          5. RichardD says:

            You’re mistaken. The Russians have said several times that they had no part in the alleged operation:

            “In a statement, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said the Russian military “does not have reliable information” on a US Special Operations raid in Syria’s Idlib province …

            “Firstly, on Saturday and in recent days no air strikes were made on the Idlib de-escalation zone by US aircraft or the so-called ‘international coalition’ were recorded,” Konashenkov said. “Secondly, we are not aware of any alleged assistance to the passage of American aviation into the airspace of the Idlib de-escalation zone during this operation.””

            Thank God he’s/she’s found someone else to obsess him/herself with, sorry I’m just glad to be rid of him/her,
            and you should’ve mentioned Trump thanked Putin for his support,

            “President Donald Trump thanked the Russian government among other countries for aiding US Special Forces in an operation that killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the founder and leader of ISIS.
            Trump thanked the governments of Russia, Turkey, Syria, and Iraq, as well as the Syrian Kurds for their “acknowledgment and help” in Saturday’s mission.
            “[The Russians] were very cooperative, they really were good. And we said it would be a mission they’d like, too, because they hate ISIS, too,” Trump said during a Sunday morning press conference”.


          7. RichardD says:

            You’ve never disproven a single thing that I’ve posted. I’ve disproven your lies many times. You’ve been Russia bashing here when the credible evidence shows that it’s the US not Russia that is lying. The only reason that you got rid of me is because you lost the debate after I outted your lies and stopped trying to spam these threads with your filth. Just like PZIVJ stopped responding after he was disproven.

          8. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

            I haven’t disproven anything you’ve said hey, LOL, we’ve gotten to a point where I could troll back through my old discus comments and publish a book about your misinterpreted news articles, you can’t tell the difference between the truth and purposefully confusing propaganda, and even worse still you ignore the truth even when it’s pointed out and you then cling to obvious mistruths for whatever reasons [possibly paid for comment].
            I’ve been telling the truth RidhardD, which is not Russia bashing, I’m actually pro Russia, especially the communist party and the Russian people, and also absolutely love many of the things Putin does on the international and domestic stage too [anti LGBTQI for example], but in Syria I have nothing but contempt for just about every single action Putin’s ever taken, is that Russia bashing is it, no it isn’t
            What I’m doing is just constructive criticism, I know the Russians are spinning the truth now and want everyone else to know too, the truth is always important Richard. And because I’m totally opposed to Putin’s alliance with the biggest monster in the playground, and his totally disloyal behaviour to the man who actually saved his economy from disaster, I’m totally critical of Putin’s behaviour right now.
            And the fact he’s also duping simpletons like you angers me more than anything else, because even though I don’t like you at all RichardD, because you’ve done nothing but slander me venomously, insult me offensively, and hound me with your countless posts that never seem to stop, I still think everyone deserves to know what the truth really is, and it’s not what you think it is quite often, especially concerning the Adana agreement and Assad’s acceptance of it.

          9. RichardD says:

            You’ve lied many times. You’ve even admitted it. What you claim and what you can prove are two different things.

          10. Karen Bartlett says:

            Mr. Trump saying these countries helped doesn’t prove they did. The only ones who say they helped are the Kurds, whom the US has been financially backing and arming.

          11. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

            I have no idea what the truth is, maybe they helped in way’s they weren’t even aware of.
            Even if Trump was blatantly lying why the hell would he share the prestige with all the other parties he mentioned, it only made them look good in the rest of the worlds eyes, not bad, was he doing some sucking up, I have no idea, it doesn’t really make sense at all.

          12. Karen Bartlett says:

            Is it prestigious to share in a lie? Al-Baghdadi has been “killed” several times already.

          13. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

            You’re assuming it’s a lie, why is that, isn’t it possible the Russians and Syrians are lying instead, I back Assad totally but still believe he’d lie about cooperating with the US, that’s if he indeed did in some very small practically insignificant way.
            I assume everything both sides tell me is a lie, my job is to work out what is or isn’t the truth, only believing what your own side tells you and totally discounting what the other side says isn’t the best way of recognizing the truth.
            The only lie I’m concerned about now is the lie about the Adana agreement, I compare what the Russians say to what Assad says, and I don’t think Assad’s lying.
            On one hand the Russians are saying Syria should retain its territorial integrity, but on the other hand they’re doing everything they can to legally justify the Turkish occupation of Syrian territory, and Assad still keeps saying he wants the Turks out, so who’s lying to me?

          14. Karen Bartlett says:

            I’m American, so logically “my own side” would be the US gov’t but I don’t believe much that they say. Russia isn’t trying to “justify the Turkish occupation of Syria”. They’re trying to get rid of terrorists. If Turkey tries to keep Syrian land in the border zone then they are breaking the Adana agreement.

          15. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

            Did you say,
            “Russia isn’t trying to justify the Turkish occupation of Syria”.
            that’s biggest lie of all and you’re just perpetuating it, Russia is not only trying to justify Turkey’s presence in Syria, they’re also trying to legally justify their presence according to international law.

            There is no such thing as your own side, that’s just a fallacy, people in power lie to everyone, that’s the only truth.

          16. Karen Bartlett says:

            Russia doesn’t need to “justify their presence according to international law” in Syria. Russia was invited by the Syrian gov’t to enter Syria to help fight the terrorists, which Syria was unable to do by themselves. Russia accepted the invitation. That’s perfectly legal under international law. Why do you try to second-guess the motives of Russia? The Adana agreement states their motives, which is to try to get rid of terrorists in Syria and which threaten Russia as well. If they have another motive, present your evidence, for that and for the childish statement about “people in power lie to everyone.”

          17. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

            You’ve misread what I wrote, Putin’s trying to justify Turkey’s presence under international law, not their own,

            “Russia is not only trying to justify Turkey’s presence in Syria, they’re also trying to legally justify their presence according to international law”.

            I think you may have did the same thing when you read the articles about the Adana agreement and what the Russians hope to achieve by re implementing it.

  8. RichardD says:

    How convenient. The entire world was turned upside down over a man who was never even convicted of a crime and had all charges against him dismissed by a government that mass murdered up to 1 million innocent people in his name.

    “A U.S. judge Friday dismissed all criminal charges against Osama bin Laden following the al Qaeda leader’s death in a military raid in Pakistan.

    U.S. District Court judge Lewis Kaplan, who had been presiding over the bin Laden case in Manhattan federal court, issued an order called “nolle prosequi,” which means do not prosecute in Latin, a typical legal move once a defendant is deceased.”

    – U.S. judge dismisses charges against bin Laden –


    1. Karen Bartlett says:

      Dismissing charges in this case does not mean they found him innocent of crime. It just means he’s deceased and they can’t prosecute.

      1. RichardD says:

        They prosecute people in absentia every day. They didn’t present evidence for extradition or for an absentia conviction.

        1. Karen Bartlett says:

          Yes, but prosecuting people “in absentia” means these people are still living, even though not present. Your post said “nolie proseque” (no prosecution) and you said it’s typical for a deceased defendant. They didn’t therefore “present evidence for extradition or for an absentia conviction”, because the guy was dead. There’s no point in prosecuting a dead guy. That’s all it means. (And I respect your posts.)

          1. RichardD says:

            If they didn’t convict him in absentia for almost 20 years while he was alive. It doesn’t say much for their case.

          2. Karen Bartlett says:

            Yeah, that didn’t even occur to me but it’s obviously true.

  9. RichardD says:

    The Afghan government offered to extradite bin Laden if the US could provide evidence against him. Which the US rejected.

    “On October 14, Abdul Kabir, the Taliban’s third ranking leader, offered to hand over bin Laden to a neutral third country if the US government provided evidence of his guilt”

    – United States invasion of Afghanistan –


    1. Karen Bartlett says:

      Probably the US had no evidence of his guilt, if the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, who say the Towers was an implosion from planted explosives, are to be believed. And I believe them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpxBuNdD5ew

      1. RichardD says:

        My view is that the attack used non conventional means to destroy the WTC. Though I wouldn’t rule out that conventional explosives were part of the stagecraft. Dr. Judy Woods work, while imperfect, helps illustrate this. A&E for 911 truth are part of the cover up. If anyone knows that most of the buildings never hit the ground, it should be them.

        I’ve done the calculations myself. The material debris isn’t on the ground from everything that was brought down at the WTC site on 911. The primary debris field should average 4 stories deep. It’s only about 35% of that, if that much. Some type of sequestered or off planet technology was used during the attack. To dematerialize most of the buildings before they even hit the ground.

        1. Karen Bartlett says:

          I should have said “incendiaries” instead of “explosives”. I have heard of Dr. Judy Woods-i’ll look her up and see what she says. Interesting about the debris field, I had not even considered that. By “off planet technology” do you mean something like satellites? And what do you mean you were in a beam weapon shooting? Was this in the military? Don’t answer if it’s not prudent.

          1. RichardD says:

            Thermite is a type of hybrid explosive incendiary. Dr. Woods points to energy research, both government and private sector as the source of the technology that caused the lack of debris. By off planet I’m referring to ET technology. Either used by the ETs themselves or in conjunction with some type of secret space program/ET joint venture.

            The shooting was part of my research into off planet travel. It was something that I did on my own. It wasn’t part of a government project. About 10 years ago I received written offers over the internet to go up to the big ships to meet with ET representatives to talk with them about our planet’s future and possibly normalizing relations with them for technology imports to upgrade our standard of living and solve environmental and other problems. Like short lifespans. The travel options were either beam travel or having a small ship land for pick up and drop off.

            It was part of the whole new age “Galactic Federation of Light” movement on the internet:


            And people claiming to be involved with it.

            I was blogging on the Infowars comment section and struck up a dialogue with someone there claiming to be an ET contactee. He had me go to another new age site where the communications continued and the transportation offers were made. The extent to which real ETs are involved in all of that I’m not sure. I met with a former business partner of Sheldon Nidal during my research into the offers. She told me that he was being paid by the US government to produce that material. Nidal is a primary propagator of the GFL material.

            Part of my research into the offers included traveling to Switzerland for a meeting at Billy Meier’s place, the Semjase Silver Star Center. To talk with them about the offers. He’s purportedly been up on the ships and the ETs have been at his place multiple times. A couple of months after I got back from Switzerland I attended a week long retreat with Dr. Steven Greer to learn telepathy.

            It was about a year after I started getting the offers and met in Switzerland and attended Greer’s workshop combined. I was having disagreements with the person that I received the transportation offers from and people that he was involved with. As to how they felt that relations with the ETs should evolve, and my perspective when the shooting occurred about an hour outside of Sacramento, CA at a truck stop. I think that it was in response to policy disagreements due to my not wanting to go along with the ET’s purported objectives.

            I never saw the shooter. But I knew that I was injured from the pain and permanent scarring that I have to this day. The pain subsided over the course of about 1 year’s time. I went to the dentist and a plastic surgeon and received negative reactions from both. And there was nothing that they could do. So I didn’t pursue further medical treatment.

            I broke off communications with the GFL people after the shooting. And pursued ET/ED contact work independently. That I’m working on at this time.

    So now the CIA is seizing total control of isis.

    1. Karen Bartlett says:

      Of course you know the CIA invented ISIS.

  11. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

    So all the big wig Isis leaders are living it up in Idlib courtesy of Erdogan’s hospitality, but Trump’s now evicting them through the top story windows of the Erdogan run Idlib hotel, LOL.
    Obama refused to place the Muslim brotherhood [MB] on the designated US terrorist list and encouraged Isis [the MB’s foot soldiers] to run amok in Iraq and Syria, but when they started to spillover into Egypt and Jordan things went too far and got out of control.
    Now Trump’s in power he’s trying his hardest to have the MB put on both the US and UN’s designated terrorist list, and also doing whatever he can to destroy Obama’s terrible legacy with Isis as well.
    And the fact they attained credible information and used it to successfully assassinate these 2 highly sought after targets, also implies they’d possibly have incriminating evidence about who both al-Muhajir and al Baghdadi sponsors in Idlib actually were, and hopefully some fingers will point Erdogan’s way if anythings revealed.

  12. Taz T says:

    All these Al-Qaeda, Turkic speaking and IS terrorists are in Turkish controlled area. It shows the connection even more and yet Russia has made a deal with Turkey which allows them to control these area.

  13. Taz T says:

    Unfortunately the Kurd don’t seem to learn anything. As Trump said he does not care about Kurd. Turkey is more important to him. They need to smart up.

  14. gustavo says:

    It is not posssible to nelieve to these “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.” NOt way my friend. Of course, the propaganda will be very good for Trump re-election, the same happened with Obama re-election (they presented a show of some strange operation), where nobody believe the dead of Bib Laden but north-american people.
