Asked in Washington about al-Qurayshi's death, the spokesman for the U.S. National Security Council, John Kirby, said: "We certainly welcome the news of the death of another ISIS leader. I don’t have any additional operational details to provide at this time.”

Keep the pressure on this terrorist group.

The leader of the Islamic State group, Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, was killed in battle recently, the group’s spokesman said in audio released Wednesday. He gave no further details.

Very suspicious the IS head terrorist didn't say where al-Qurayashi was killed.

Israel probably had a hand in this and IS doesn't want to admit it.

israel would not do this as IS in Syria is backed by USA in their fight against the Syrian government, which Israel is also fighting. Keeping IS alive preoccupies the Russian forces fighting them, and gives Israel free range to attack Syria from the South.
