ISIS Names New leader, Confirms Predecessor’s Death

The Islamic State jihadist group confirmed the demise of its leader Abu Ibrahim al-Qurashi in a statement Thursday and designated Abu Hasan al-Hashemi al-Qurashi as his replacement.

The announcement came more than a month after the ISIS chief died during a US raid that saw troops flown by helicopter into northwest Syria, in an area controlled by rival jihadists.

ISIS personnel have “pledged allegiance” to “Abu Hasan al-Hashemi al-Qurashi as an emir over believers and the caliph of Muslims,” the group’s spokesperson said in an audio recording released on its social media channels.
