The purported new leader of ISIS captured in Iraq

Iraq’s National Intelligence Service announced on Thursday: “Today, the terrorists named Abdulnasser al-Qirdash, the candidate to succeed the criminal al-Baghdadi, was arrested. The arrest came after accurate intelligence.” A picture of the prisoner was attached. Qirdash is believed to have conducted the running of the terrorist group after Baghdadi killed himself to escape American capture. He may be the highest-ranking ISIS official to be caught and therefore a valuable source of intelligence on the estimated 14,000 to 18,000 members still active in Iraq and Syria and other parts of the world.
