There’s always reports of high ranking officials from ISIS being killed, but this latest demise of an Islamic State figure is a big deal. The number two leader of ISIS has been killed in Aleppo, Syria according to terror group’s media arm Amaq Agency.
Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, who has been with the terror group since its inception, is dead. The terror boss was second-in-command after Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the caliph of the Islamic State. Abu Mohammad al-Adnani was the chief of propaganda and spokesman. He was one of the first leaders in ISIS to encourage and mastermind Daesh attacks in the U.S. and Europe. Adnani developed the ISIS strategy for lone-wolf attacks against the West. The 37-year-old had a $5 million bounty on his head from the United States.
There are no details on his death.
The SITE Intelligence Group described his death as a “major blow” for the terror group.
Hey Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, where you at?
