Senior ISIS operative responsible for murder of Western journalists killed in Aleppo air strike

A senior Isil operative responsible for some of the group’s most notorious atrocities, including the murder of Western journalists and aid workers, has been killed in Syria.

Amr al-Absi led the Mujahideen Shura Council, the first group to raise Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (Isil) notorious black flag in July 2012. He was later put in charge of the extremist group’s operations across Aleppo and appointed to a small council of advisers answering directly to its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

    I don’t know.
    Western journalists.
    Maybe I don’t care so much about that.

    Another muslim murderous thug bites the dust! At least someone says so. Of course it could be yet another ploy to allow this thing to contact Justin and be granted a trip to Ottawa to be put in charge of Islamic affairs.
