Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, the leader of the Islamic State,  was recently killed in battle, the terrorist group said an audio recording released on Wednesday, November 30, 2022.

Details on the ISIS leader’s death including how, when or where were not reportedly released by the group, and the White House has yet to independently confirm al-Qurayshi’s death.

“We certainly welcome the news of the death of another ISIS leader,” National Security Council coordinator John Kirby told journalists on Wednesday, November 30, 2022. “I don’t have any additional operational details to provide at this time. We’re still working our way through that.”

But when pressed on whether the U.S. has been able to confirm what would be the second ISIS leader death in a year he said, “We welcome the announcement that another leader from ISIS is no longer walking the face of the earth.”

The death of al-Qurayshi marks the second death of an ISIS leader this year after his predecessor Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi was killed in a U.S. raid in February, and the third since ISIS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed by U.S. forces in 2019.

The death of the ISIS leader earlier this year came as a blow to the terrorist group that had been attempting to carry out deadly attacks in Iraq and Syria after having been largely ousted from both nations in 2017 and 2019.

“He died fighting the enemies of God killing some of them before being killed like a man on the battlefield,” IS spokesman Abu Omar al-Muhajer said regarding the latest ISIS leader’s death.

Abu al-Hussein al-Husseini al-Qurayshi has been named the group’s newest leader though little appears to be known about him.

“He is one of the veteran warriors and one of the loyal sons of the Islamic State,” al-Muhajer said.

No one has publicly claimed responsibility for al-Qurayshi’s death. 

ISWAP Commander Arrested In Foiled Attempt To Free Terrorists From Detention Cam

Scores of terrorists suspected to be ISWAP fighters have met their waterloo in the hands of Nigerian troops after a failed attempt to free their leaders in a concentration camp located in New Bussa, Niger State.

A defence intelligence source told PRNigeria that the military had been anticipating the terrorists who met a massive ambush laid for them.

“Though the incident happened in the night, the troops had been anticipating such daring moves and have been on high alert. They just came into our trap. While at least seven dead bodies of the terrorists were counted this morning, the troops succeeded in arresting one of their commanders who led the fighter,” the news platform reported on Sunday, October 30, 2022.

“NAF aircraft were also timely in supporting the ground troops from Wawa Military cantonment in Borgu local government area of Niger state, hence the success in decimating the terrorists,” he said.

6 Terrorists Killed As ISWAP And Boko Haram Clash In Borno

The fighters of the Islamic State of West African Province, ISWAP, have reportedly attacked the enclaves of Abubakar Shekau’s faction of Boko Haram, during which six terrorists were killed.

According to Zagazola Makama, a Counter-Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in the Lake Chad Region, the attackers also recovered five AK-47 rifles from the Boko Haram terrorists.

Sources said the incident, which occured at the weekend, appeared to be a continuation of their sustained inter-rivalry clash where the ISWAP terrorists had in a silent operation invaded the home of Boko Haram insurgents in Gajibo, a town 95km northeast of Maiduguri, Borno State capital and slaughtered six whom they declared as “infidels”.

Makama in his official website wrote, “ISWAP had carried out many successful attacks against Boko Haram terrorists in its sustained feuds, which caused the group a huge casualty and loss of war assets.

“The worsening of inter-rivalry clashes, between jihadist groups, may lead them to irreversible self-destruction as the revolting ISWAP had vowed to battle more with members of its former main body than even with the Nigerian troops”.
