ISIS Second In Command Reportedly Killed

Mark 13:8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.

The Iraqi ministry of defense has reported that the second in command for the Islamic terrorist group ISIS has been killed.

Abdul Rahman Mustafa Mohammed, also called Abu Alaa al-Afari, was killed in a strike on a mosque targeted by Iraqi troops according to Brigadier General Tahsin Ibrahim.

Gen. Ibrahim said that dozens of other terrorists were killed in the strike on the al-Shuhada mosque in the town of al-Iyadhiya near Tal Afar.  ISIS took over Tal Afar and the region in June 2014.

The general did not say which nation carried out the air strike.

The Pentagon said they were unable to confirm the death but the Governor of Nineveh said that his contacts had confirmed the death of al-Afari.

Iraqi officials have announced the deaths of ISIS leadership in the past only to have the subject surface alive in new locations.  The U.S. had added al-Afari to their list of designated global terrorists in 2014.
