Beirut, Lebanon. Abu al-Hasan al-Hashimi al-Qureshi, the leader of the Islamic State (IS) group, was recently killed in fighting. This information was given by the spokesperson of the group in an audio released on Wednesday. Little is known about al-Qurayshi, who took over the group’s operations following the death of Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi in a US strike in northwest Syria in February. Al-Qureshi is the second leader of this group to be killed this year and it is a big blow for this group. No one has taken responsibility for his death.

IS spokesman Abu Umar al-Mujahir made this announcement at a time when IS is in the process of carrying out deadly attacks in parts of Syria and Iraq. Al-Mujahir said that Abu al-Hussein al-Husseini al-Qurayshi has been named the new leader of the group. IS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in an attack in the northwest in October 2019.

ISIS was defeated in Iraq in 2017 and in Syria two years later, but sleeper cells of the Sunni Muslim extremist group still carry out attacks in both countries and claim attacks elsewhere in the world. IS’s previous leader, Abu Ibrahim al-Qureshi, was killed earlier this year in northern Syria’s Idlib province. Prior to that, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was also killed in Idlib in October 2019.

During a recent event, India’s National Security Advisor Ajil Doval, underlining the continuing threat of cross-border and ISIS-inspired terrorism, said that the Ulema has an important role in countering radicalization and extremism with progressive ideas. Ajit Doval had said that the cooperation of civil organizations is necessary to counter the threat posed by ISIS-inspired individual terrorist cells and those returning from such centers in Syria and Afghanistan.
