The Stan R. Mitchell report for 2/4/22.
Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you’ve had a great week.
The biggest news this week was the death of Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, the head of ISIS, who took over the leadership of the group in 2019. The Washington Post reported several key details about Qurayshi and his recent reign as head of the terrorist group. From the story:
Qurayshi took control of the Islamic State after his predecessor, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, killed himself in a similar U.S. raid in northwest Syria in 2019. Although the militant organization’s reach has diminished since it seized major cities there and in Iraq in 2014, U.S. officials said Qurayshi was planning a comeback, citing last month’s bloody, multiday siege on Syria’s Hasakah prison, where hundreds of ISIS fighters have been detained. He also oversaw some of the militants’ most horrific activities, including its genocide of the Yazidi minority sect in Iraq in 2014 — during which rape was wielded as a weapon of terror.
