On Wednesday, The International Coalition Confirmed The Killing Of” Abu Hassan Al-Gharbawi” And Three Other Fighters In What He Described As A “Dynamic Air Strike” West Of Baghdad On Tuesday.

“The So-Called Leader Of Southern Iraq, The Leader Of Southern Iraq, And The Terrorist Ghanem Sabah, Who Is Responsible For Transporting Suicide Bombers And Other Terrorists, Have Been Eliminated,” Said Mustafa Al-Kazhimi.

The Announcement O ‘Faal-Ghribaoui”s Death Comes A Few Days After The Announcement That The “Governor Of Iraq” Was Killed In The Isis Group Known As” Abu Yasser Al-Issawi “And Other Leaders Of The Group.

The Attacks Come As Pressure Mounts On The Iraqi Government To Respond To Last Month’s Double Suicide Bombing At Baghdad’s Popular Market, Killing 32 People And Injuring More Than 100.

Coalition Officials Told Voice Of America That The Killing Of Isis Leader Al-Issawi Was Another “Major Blow” To ISIS, But Warned That The Threat Has Not Yet Gone, As ISIS Appears Determined To Revive The “Caliphate” It Has Declared.

“ISIS Is Defeated Regionally But Still A Challenge,” Colonel Wayne Maruto, Spokesman For The U.S.-Led Coalition, Said In An Email, Noting The Need To “Continue To Put Continued Pressure” On The Terrorist Group.

U.S. Officials Have Also Expressed Concern About ISIS’s Resilience, Saying Last Month’s Baghdad Market Operation — The First Of Its Kind Since 2018 — Underscores ISIS’s Strength.

“The Structure and Cohesion Of ISIL HAS ALLOWED IT TO MAINTAIN ITS INFLUENCE, EXPANDING IN SOME AREAS DESPITE CONTINUED COUNTERTERRORISM PRESSURE,” A U.S. OFFICIAL TOLD THE AGENCY.
