ISIS names successor to slain leader al-Baghdadi

Source: NBC

The Islamic State militant group announced a new leader Thursday to succeed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was killed in an American-led raid in Syria last weekend.

ISIS named Abu Ibrahim Hashimi al-Quraishi in a message posted by its official media wing, according to the security consulting firm and NBC News partner Flashpoint.

It was the first time ISIS had acknowledged the death of al-Baghdadi, as well as that of another senior figure named Abu Hassan al-Muhajir. President Donald Trump had identified al-Muhajir as al-Baghdadi's "number one replacement."

In an audio message released Thursday, the group called on fighters to rally around the new leader and threatened America, according to a translation provided by Flashpoint.

I thought Trump said he killed the successor.

1. I'm surprised they didn't name Putin or Trump as their new leader.

5. Just remember, New Dude,

Killing people is the lowest common denominator of the human experience.

7. Gee, I thought they would just give up and go home!

I never, ever would have suspected they would find a new leader?

What manner of witchcraft is this?!??!!

9. I wonder how many times he'll be killed?

I saw a meme over the weekend that listed at least 6 headlines that Baghdadi had been killed.
