"Shaykh Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, the spokesman of the Islamic State, was martyred while surveying the operations to repel the military campaigns in Aleppo," the great Arnaq wrote, citing a military source.
The terror group declared revenge for the killing, as if they were ready to be on their merry way out of Dodge if left alone. They said that it is a generation raised in ISIS-held territory that will spill the blood of the enemy where "the blood of the sheikhs will only make it more firm on the path of jihad and determination to take revenge for the assault."
Adnani's death could not be confirmed as yet but we're keeping our fingers crossed.
The 39-year-old baby-bearded Adnani was born in Binnish in northern Syria. He's been credited with selecting the gruesome execution videos the sociopathic organization puts out, according to the leftist rag New York Times.
Back around Christmastime, a top intelligence source told NBC that Adnani was the most wanted ISIS terrorist--not Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The State Department put a $5 million reward on his head.
"He's at the top of the list,' the official said, in part because he was the leader of the ISIS propaganda arm and the loudest voice calling for "lone wolf" attacks against the West.
He also made a speech in September 2014 encouraging Islamic jihadists to kill Europeans by any means necessary: "Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car," Adnani told his flock of devout Medina-Koran following Muslims.
Top ISIS fighters recruited into a secret elite fighting unit met with Adnani, but were blindfolded. Only a few ISIS fighters knew what he looked like, but the word out in the sand is that he doesn't look so good now.
