This is coolbert:
"He was on our target list from the earliest days of the campaign. He was Baghdadi's right-hand man, and ... was personally responsible for some of the most vicious ISIS atrocities,"
Abu Ibrahim gone. Swims with the fishes. # 2 man in the Islamic State hierarchy and apparently # 1 since the death of Caliph Ibrahim [Al-Baghdadi].
Thatnks to Reuters and the story by Phil Stewart and Trevor Hunnicutt.
"WASHINGTON, Feb 3 (Reuters) - U.S. forces rehearsed the helicopter raid over and over, hoping to capture Islamic State's leader on the third floor of a residential building in a Syrian town on the Turkish border, where he was holed up with his family."
"But before they [American special forces] could reach him, Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Quraishi detonated a suicide bomb, triggering a large explosion that blew mangled bodies -- including his own -- out of the building into the streets outside."
His body, the body of his wives and children also now bits and pieces. Also some of his comrades and other civilians blow up by the detonation.
DON'T TRY TO BLAME THE DEATHS OF INNOCENTS ON THE USA. ONLY ONE MAN TO BLAME AND THAT IS ABU IBRAHIM.
