Turkish operation in Syria kills the leader of Daesh

Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan announced last night during an interview for public television that, during an operation in Syria carried out on April 29, Turkish forces killed the current leader of the terrorist group Daesh (ISIS), Abu Hussein by -Qurayshi, whom the Turkish intelligence services (MİT) had been following “for a long time” and who had ordered several attacks in both Syria and Iraq. According to some media, the operation would have taken place in an abandoned building used as an Islamic school in Jindires, in the Syrian region of Afrin, which Turkey controls since a military operation carried out in 2018.

At the same time, Turkish media reported on Monday the death, during another operation by Turkish secret services in Ayn al-Arab, in northern Syria, of Sabri Abdullah, alias Mazlum Karamok, responsible for organizing attacks against Turkish security forces and head of the “military security unit” of the YPG, the Syrian affiliate of the PKK terror group.
