Head of Islamic State Abdulnasser al-Qirdash “arrested by Iraqi special forces in a raid” – The Sun


The head of the Islamic State, Abdulnasser al-Qirdash, was arrested by Iraqi special forces during a raid, according to reports this evening.

He was named number two in the terrorist group after the death of former leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last October.

At one point, he was even considered the successor to the bloodthirsty chief.

“Today, the terrorist named Abdulnasser al-Qirdash, the candidate to succeed criminal al-Baghdadi, has been arrested,” said a statement from the Iraqi national intelligence service.

They published a photo of a dark and skinny al-Qirdash, alone in a room in a checkered shirt, hands by his side.

Media in the region say he is the highest ranking Islamic State officer to have been taken into custody.

Firebrand Baghdadi was killed when US forces stormed his complex in northwestern Syria and blew himself up with a suicide vest after being trapped in a tunnel.

Death has left a void at the head of the death cult and anti-terrorist organizations have wondered who would take its place.

At the time, ISIS said, “Whoever does what he has contracted with Allah … he will give him a great reward. “

The terrorist group then warned America not to “rejoice in the murder” of its leader before adding that future attacks would not be limited to the Middle East.

The speech threatened: “America, don’t you realize that the Islamic State is now at the forefront of Europe and West Africa? It stretches from East to West. “

He also called on supporters to continue Baghdadi’s mission to free the captured ISIS prisoners so that they can cause more blood to be shed on the planet.

The murderous organization did not provide much detail about the new leader or publish a photo, but described him as an “eminent figure in jihad.”

It has since been reported that Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi has taken over.

Last week, we reported that Islamic State jihadists were again rampant in Syria and Iraq – launching prison escapes and suicide bombings.

The Islamic death cult was wiped out last year when they were driven out of their last enclave in northeastern Syria.

IS has declared the creation of a “caliphate” – a state governed by Sharia law – after taking control of large areas of Iraq and Syria in 2014 and imposing its brutal rule on millions of people.

He proclaimed Baghdadi “Caliph Ibrahim” and demanded allegiance from Muslims around the world.

The group still has thousands of “members” in Iraq and Syria, according to a recent American report.
