Iraq-Syria, the Islamic State loses another of the most important leaders

The Islamic State loses another of the most important leaders between Iraq and Syria. The man was the emir of the “al-Zarqawi battalion”. The mystery about the new caliph, the unfulfilled promises and the escalation of attacks suffered are putting the former ISIS in crisis

The Islamic State loses one of its most important leaders between Iraq and Syria. He is Muhammad al-Zawbaie, alias Abu Azzam / Abu Seif, captured by the ISF in a coordinated operation with Inherent Resolve south-east of Bagdhad. The man, considered the emir of the “al-Zarqawi battalion”, moved between the two countries where he managed pro-ISIS jihadist units and organized their transfers. In the same days, an IS cell, which operated between the Iraqi capital and Kirkuk, was also dismantled, and numerous militiamen and local commanders were captured. The raids are the response to the “Vengeance for the two Sheikhs” operation, which terrorists launched in Iraq and Syria to avenge the deaths of the two caliphs: al-Baghdadi and al-Mawla (Abu Ibrahim Al Hashimi Al Qurayshi). The mystery of who the new caliph is, the unfulfilled promises and the escalation of captures and killings of the leaders are however putting the group in crisis, more and more broken.
