(Terrorism) Le cause e le conseguenze dell’uccisione del Califfo dello Stato Islamico a Deraa (fonte: Rami Jameel, The Jamestown Foundation)

On November 30, the Islamic State (IS) announced that its “caliph,” Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurashi (Abu al-Hassan), was killed and another leader, Abu al-Hussein al-Husseini al-Qureshi (Abu al-Hussein), was the new caliph (alarabiya.net, November 30). This was the second time in only one year that an IS caliph was killed, with both Abu al-Hassan and his own predecessor, Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi (a.k.a. Haji Abdullah Qardash or Abu Ibrahim), being the two successors of the “original” IS caliph, Abubakar al-Baghdadi, who was killed in a U.S. special forces operation in northwestern Syria in October 2019. Like al-Baghdadi, Abu Ibrahim was killed in a U.S. raid in February in Idlib province in northwestern Syria (aljazeera.net, February 3).
