Top Commander of IS killed in Iraq (PHOTO)

A top Islamic State group commander, Omar al-Shishani, has been killed in Iraq, the jihadist-linked Amaq agency said on Wednesday.

The Pentagon announced in March that Shishani was believed to have died of injuries received in an air strike targeting his convoy in northeastern Syria — details at odds with Amaq’s account. Citing a “military source,” Amaq said Shishani was killed “in the town of Sharqat as he took part in repelling the military campaign on the city of Mosul”, referring to the last IS-held city in Iraq. 

Iraqi forces are conducting operations to set the stage for a final push to Mosul, the country’s second city that fell to IS in June 2014.

Amaq did not specify when Shishani was killed, but the loss of the commander is a blow to the jihadist group, which has suffered a string of setbacks in Iraq this year.
