Iraq: ISIS terror group chief captured alive
BREAKING: Iraqi security forces have arrested Muslim terrorist Hajji Abd al-Nasir, one of the most important leaders of ISIS. He was a strong candidate for the terror group’s leadership after the elimination of al-Baghdadi.
“Today, the terrorist named Abdulnasser al-Qirdash, the candidate to succeed the criminal al-Baghdadi, was arrested,” the statement from the Iraqi National Intelligence Service reads.
Earlier reports indicated that current ISIS chief Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi, successor of the eliminated Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been arrested.
In October 2019, barely a day after Muslim arch-terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi killed himself with a suicide vest, running in a tunnel whimpering and screaming, Abu Ibrahim al-Hashmi al-Qureshi, a former Saddam Hussein army officer, took the terror group’s reins.
Intelligence information revealed that his joining ISIS was not his first stage of terrorism, as he had been involved in al-Qaeda in Iraq.
He was imprisoned in the US-run Camp Bucca in Iraq, starting in 2004, where he met al-Baghdadi.
Al-Qurashi is the architect behind ISIS’ slaughter of the Yazidi religious minority and oversaw some of the terror group’s global terror attacks.
