Special Forces capture new ISIS leader

The new leader of ISIS, Abdulnasser al-Qirdash has reportedly been arrested in a raid by Iraqi intelligence officers.

Al-Qirdash took over activities of the group following the death of his predecessor Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in October.

According to Metro UK, the Iraqi National Intelligence Service said the group leader was arrested based on ‘accurate intelligence.’

The Iraqi National Intelligence Service also shared a picture of their new prisoner wearing a long-sleeved flannel shirt.

In a statement, they said: ‘Today, the terrorist named Abdulnasser al-Qirdash, the candidate to succeed the criminal al-Baghdadi, was arrested. The arrest came after accurate intelligence.’


Media outlets say he is the highest-ranking ISIS officer to be taken into custody.

Al-Baghdadi killed himself along with his two children by detonating a suicide vest during a US raid in which he was cornered in a tunnel.
