In March of this year, the Pentagon said the elimination of al-Shishani. According to Washington, the leader of the terrorists was seriously injured during an American air strike and subsequently died.

Shortly before his death he went from Raqqa (the unofficial capital of ISIS) in al-Shadadi to meet with the militants who are engaged in heavy fighting in the region.

It should be noted that on the death of al-Shishani, who was also known as Umar the Chechen, previously reported several times. In the past year, the United States even announced for his head a reward of $ 5 million.

Ethnic Chechen Tarkhan Batirashvili was born in one of the villages in the Pankisi gorge in 1986. He had to serve in the Georgian army, however, in 2012, he was convicted for illegal possession of weapons.

In the same year he went to Turkey, then joined the terrorists. Becoming a field commander of ISIS, he repeatedly voiced threats against Russia.
