US Kills ISIS Second-In-Command For 3rd Time In 2 Years

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

While Russia and Iran are busy liberating whole cities from ISIS in Syria, the US is sticking with the “one raid at a time” approach and it apparently paid dividends on Thursday morning when Abu Alaa Afri, also known as Abd al-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli and Haji Imam was killed in Syria.

US Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joe Dunford are set to make the announcement this morning at a press conference and the Pentagon is thrilled. Al-Qaduli had a $7 million bounty on his head, higher than Omar the Chechen (who was killed earlier this month) and Abu Mohammed al-Adnani who is arguably more influential than Bakr himself.  

A physics teacher by trade, Mosul-born al-Qaduli was ISIS before ISIS was ISIS. He served as a deputy to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (Islamic State’s “godfather”) and was jailed by the US in Iraq in 2012. Upon his release, he joined ISIS and reportedly was Bin Laden’s choice to lead the group after Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub al-Masri were killed in 2010. He was, however, passed over for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, whose family can be loosely traced to the Prophet.

Al-Qaduli is no stranger to being dead.

He died last April for instance, in a strike on a mosque in Iraq. “Al-Qaduli was one of several people killed in a strike that hit a mosque where Islamic State leaders were meeting,” WSJ reported at the time. He was also killed in September of 2014. Here’s the airstrike that killed him last year:

In any event, if al-Qaduli is indeed no more, it means that ISIS has lost two of its top brass in the space of just three weeks (al-Shishani being the other).

And if US SpecOps did indeed kill him, it just goes to show that the CIA has indeed served a burn notice on the entire chain of command. After all, Russia and Hezbollah are pushing uncomfortably close to Deir ez-Zor and Raqqa and dead men, as they say, tell no tales.

  1. It’s just like all those gun grab actors and kids that keep dying at every false flag

    The last thing the Marxists of the World want people to figure out, is that political correctness is a form of psychological warfare..
    PC has been injected into society for the purpose of silencing and shaming the population from speaking out ahead of the invasion and chaos that is now taking place.. The Marxists will continue importing violence to your shores until people beg for security and find themselves living in a Communist Police State.. Look around you.. It’s already began.. If you want to get an idea of what happens to the next generations who are growing up infected with this disease.. look at the citizens on N.Korea.. They are basically a society of enslaved freedom-less robots.. Wake up young people, before it is too late

  2. Well kill him a few more times, and crank up a few more false flags, or the crisis actors will be out of work.

    Too many school shootings were postponed for the presidential campaign, and they’re all filing for unemployment checks.
