In the Syrian province of Aleppo destroyed “press Secretary” of the “Islamic state” (ISIS, ISIL, a terrorist organization banned in Russia), Abu Mohammed al-Adnani. About this informed the Agency “Amak”, included in the outreach structure of the group. Later, the defense Ministry confirmed that a militant was liquidated in an airstrike, the Russian su-34. How big a loss for jihadist organizations will be the death of almost second person after its leader?
In his obituary, the group announced that the head of its propaganda “joined the caravan of martyrs in the airstrikes.
About the “press Secretary” ISIS, the head of which the American government set a price of $ 5 million, is little known. Taha Taking Falaha (this is the real name of the terrorist was born in 1977 in the Syrian city of Banash. Repeatedly had problems with the local security authorities because of the desire to join the jihadists. The war on the side of Islamist groups in Iraq, al-Adnani began with the period from 2000-2005 he Later joined ISIS.
“After al-Baghdadi (leader of ISIS – “MK”), he is the second Central figure, – quotes The New Yorker the American official who participated in the fight against ISIS. – He played a major role in military planning, was Central in the process of message exchange. It is the voice of ISIS, who spoke about all these horrific attacks in Iraq, in Syria and around the world. It is crucial”.
Al-Adnani was the official representative, the spokesman for ISIS who made their name statement: it is an important figure – said the “MK” head of the Centre for Arab and Islamic studies, Institute of Oriental studies, Vasily Kuznetsov. One of the most public figures in the group. Of course, he was part of the absolute elite of this structure. We should not overestimate the hierarchy and organization of such entities, but formally he was involved in the propaganda Department, and informally had a great impact on the work of the group. It’s true. This does not mean that after the destruction of al-Adnani then all the propaganda ISIS will disappear or will be less. LIH is a complex problem, but if we talk about the elimination of the top of the structure, al-Adnani is one of the most important figures. This is a big blow to the reputation of the organization.”
Al-Adnani issued statements in video clips for various reasons – like “MK” Islamic scholar, President of the Institute of religion and policy, member of the Council for cooperation with religious associations under the President of the Russian Federation Alexander Ignatenko. In particular, he declared that the Russian plane “Kogalymavia” flying over the Sinai was blown up by ISIS, or rather, the “Sinai Governorate”. But I would say that in vain for this fact is given so much importance by the Pentagon, Western and Russian media. Americans put a lot of effort to eliminate the leaders. But the elimination does not destroy the IG, and even does not reduce its combat capability. We should talk about that with our combined efforts, the American, the Russian other is to destroy ISIS as a territorial-network structure. The propaganda of ISIS is a complex and developed machine in which al-Adnani was only a showcase. In fact, the propaganda machine of ISIS complex. Al-Adnani is eliminated, and the system remained”.
