ISIS Second In Command Killed In Syria

ISIS Second In Command Killed In SyriaIslamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani has been killed, ISIS announced Tuesday through its Amaq News Agency. The outlet cited a military source saying Adnani โ€œwas martyred while surveying the operations to repel the military campaigns against Aleppo.โ€ But Adnani was far more than a mere mouthpiece for the group and had a $5 million bounty on his head from the United States. An August report from The New York Times placed Adnani as the leader of a vast network of operatives called the Emni, overseeing โ€œlieutenants empowered to plan attacks in different regions of the world.โ€ It was that network that planned attacks across Europe in the past year, the Times reported. Adnani had previously been reported wounded in January in Anbar province by Iraqโ€™s joint operations command.
