Two unnamed officials have confirmed that the new leader of the Islamic State (ISIS) is a man named Amir Mohammed Abdul Rahman al-Mawli al -Salbi; He is one of the founding members of the terror group and is responsible for the enslavement of the Iraqi Yazidi minority.
According to two unnamed officials, the new leader of the Islamic State (ISIS) has been identified as Amir Mohammed Abdul Rahman al-Mawli al -Salbi, one of their founding members and the man who is responsible for the enslavement of the Iraqi Yazidi minority. He’s also responsible for terror operations all around the world.
Al-Salbi was named the terror group’s new leader just hours after a United States special forces unit conducted a raid that led to the death of former ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in October, when he blew himself up at the dead-end of a tunnel. At first, Al-Salbi was given an alias in order to hide his identity. Reports indicate that over the last few months since the death of al-Baghdadi, investigations being conducted by spies revealed the Salbi had been calling the shots within the organization.
After the death of al-Baghdadi, a US State Department official stated that whoever the new leader is, “He is probably not going to enjoy his promotion.”
