Shishani's real name was Tarhan Tayumrazovich Batirashvili--it seems his parents were as sadistic as he was when they named him.
CNN reported the Pentagon was attempting to verify the results of a U.S. airstrike in March near Qaryah, south of Mosul. Officials wouldn't confirm the target and as luck would have it, Omar was in the crosshairs.
Shishani was a former sergeant in the Georgian army and became a jihadist after discharge because he "needed something to do with his hands." He joined ISIS in May 2013 and the U.S. Treasury Department put him of the global terrorist list in 2014, an Islamic honor he held until his death.
May he rest in pieces.
