On Thursday, the Islamic State declared the death of its commander, Abu Ibrahim Al-hashemi Al-Quraishi, and named Abu Al-Hassan Al-hashemi Al-Quraishi as his replacement.

President Joe Biden announced in February that US special troops killed the extremist group’s head in a mission in northwest Syria.

Quraishi’s killing, two years after IS’s longstanding leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a similar raid in 2019, was another crushing blow to the militant Sunni Muslim organisation.
