Who is the leader of ISIS that the SDF is looking for in self-governing areas?

Berusk Hassan –

The SDF is actively trying to arrest the most prominent ISIS militants, who currently lead the organization in Both Syria and Iraq, and carry out military operations, assassinations and attacks against the SDF and Iraqi forces operating in the region.

The SDF is working to gather information about the leader who is likely to lead the group, and according to many sources, the target is Prince Mohammed Abdul Rahman Al-Mawla, known as “Abdullah Qardash”, who was born in the city of “Tal Afar”, which belongs to Mosul”.

According to existing data and scarce information about a “Qardash” person, he was probably born in 1976, in the town of Tal Afar, 70 kilometres from Mosul, to a Turkmen family, which was very surprising, because a non-Arab man rarely climbs into the front lines of ISIS, which has formed the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in large parts of the territory of the two countries.

His ethnic origins prompted the United Nations to predict in a January 2020 report that he might be “a temporary option until the group finds a more legitimate leader, a direct descendant of the Hashemite Quraysh tribe, the Muhammad (as) dynasty, and therefore can get the full support of the rest of the group’s branches” in the states declared by ISIS in Libya, Yemen, Somalia, or even Europe.

So far, only one photo has been posted of Abdullah Qardash, also known as “Abu Omar al-Turkmani.
