Islamic State Confirms Death Of Head Of Its Media Arm

Islamic State on Monday confirmed the death of its propaganda chief, whom the Pentagon said was killed in a U.S.-led air strike in Syria's Raqqa province last month.

A statement posted online by the militant group paid tribute to Wa'il Adil Hasan Salman al-Fayad, also known as Abu Mohammed al-Furqan. The statement just referred to him by his alias. It did not say when, where or how he had died.

The Pentagon said last month that a U.S.-led coalition air strike on Sept. 7 had killed al-Fayad.
It said he was minister of information, overseeing Islamic State's propaganda, and a prominent member of its Senior Shura Council, or leadership group.

IS's statement referred to al-Fayad as head of its media arm.

  1. Lol May his soul RIP. Pray for the dead no matter their offense, that is the only respect you can give to them.
