Corpse of ISIS ‘Minister of War’ Al-Shishani Found by Iraqi Forces

Tuesday 22 March 2016
Corpse  of  ISIS ‘Minister of War’ Al-Shishani Found by Iraqi Forces

Alwaght-Iraqi military has body of a top ISIS commander, known as Abu Omar al-Shishani, has been found in east of Ramadi.
Iraq’s satellite TV network Alsumaria cited Iraqi military sources as saying the body of the commander who was nicknamed as ‘ISIS Minister of War’ was positively identified.
Georgian-born Abu Omar al-Shishani, who was also an ISIS recruiter in the Caucasus region, is thought to have been killed in an air raid in Syria almost two weeks ago.
His killing would have a negative impact on the ability of ISIS to recruit foreign militants, particularly those from Chechnya and the Caucasus. His  death also means that the terror group would be stripped of the ability to coordinate attacks and defend its strongholds in Raqqah, Syria, and Mosul, Iraq.
Al-Shishani – real name Tarkhan Batirashvili – was born to a Georgian-Chechen family in the Pankisi Gorge region of Georgia.
Before becoming known to the West as one of the bloodiest terrorist commanders, he lived a quiet life in the tiny village of Birkiani and worked as a shepherd. In 2007, he joined the Georgian Army and quickly progressed through the ranks. Several media reports say he was in a special reconnaissance group and stood out due to his proficiency with firearms and maps.
As an army sergeant and forward artillery observer, he took part in the Georgian Army’s offensive on the South Ossetian capital Tskhinval in 2008, which claimed hundreds of civilian lives. Al-Shishani allegedly became a terrorist after his failure to get promoted as an officer, followed by a 16-month prison term for illegal weapons possession.
