ISIS Confirms Killing of Number Two in US Airstrike

Tuesday, 13 Oct 2015 01:15 PM

The Islamic State group's spokesman confirmed on Tuesday the killing of the jihadist organizations second in command in a U.S. airstrike earlier this year.

"America is rejoicing over the killing of Abu Mutaz al-Qurashi and considers this a great victory," Abu Mohamed al-Adnani said in an audio recording posted on jihadist websites.

The White House has said that Qurashi, also known as Fadhil Ahmad al-Hayali and Haji Mutaz, was killed on August 18 in a U.S. airstrike on a vehicle near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.
