The Amaq news agency, which is considered Islamic State group news outlet, confirmed on Tuesday that Abu Muhammad al-Adnani was killed in the Syrian province of Aleppo. A 39-year-old Syrian, a founding member of the group, was “its chief propagandist,” the New York Times reports, adding that he was responsible for the external operation division, responsible for the recruitment of militants to carry out attacks, like those Islamic State group claimed responsibilities after the attacks in Paris, Brussels and Dhaka, Bangladesh.
As Amaq reported, Adnani died during the control of the military operations in Aleppo Province, the Times reports. As the Times says, “it was unclear what force might have been behind his death,” as now Turkish, American and Russian airstrikes, American-and-Turkish-backed Syrian rebels, and American-backed Kurdish rebels target the militants.
Islamic State group continues to press with terror attacks, despite the lost of the territory in Iraq and Syria.
