ISIS Names New Leader and Spokesperson after Death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi Appointed as New Leader of Jihadist Group


The Islamic State (IS) has confirmed the death of its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was killed in an operation conducted by the US military last Sunday.

In a statement released on its Telegram channel, the militant group announced that it had appointed Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Qurashi as its new leader.

The jihadist group also confirmed the death of it then spokesperson Abu al-Hasan al-Muhajir who was killed in an operation shortly before the killing of Baghdadi. Abu Hamza al-Qurashi has since been appointed as the new spokesman of the group.

Information about the new IS leader was not provided by the group but was described only as a prominent veteran jihadi fighter who fought against the US in the past.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”

Mr. Khodaverdian, a contributor to this site, is available for free consultations 24/7 by calling 800-984-4123.
