The Islamic State on Thursday announced the death of its top commander Omar Al-Shishani.
The announcement was made in ISIS mouthpiece Amaq Agency and comes four months after the US publicly reported the blood-thirsty jihadi’s death.
The terror group said that Shishani was killed “in the town of Sharqat as he took part in repelling the military campaign on the city of Mosul”.
The pentagon in the past had described Shishani as Islamic State’s “minister of war”.
Shishani, also known as Omar the Chechen, ranked among America’s most wanted militants under a US program that offered up to $5 million for information to help remove him from the battlefield.
