Al Haj Abdullah Qardash is the new leader of the terrorist organisation ISIS. He has been an officer in former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein’s Army. Qardash succeeded to the highest ‘post’ of the terrorist outfit within 24 hours of US President Donald Trump announcing that former kingpin Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a US military action in Syria.

Qardash is referred to as a “professor”. He hails from Tal Afar, Iraq. He studied in the Islamic Sciences college in Mosul. He has the experience of managing the day-to-day functioning of the ISIS.

A local intelligence official told the media that Qardash would now be the new kingpin of the ISIS. Qardash had already been appointed the successor in August after he was wounded in an air raid aimed at eliminating Baghdadi. The dreaded Baghdadi was suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure during the time and, therefore, was unable to participate in all the terror work.

Baghdadi had declared himself the Caliph (the supreme ruler in an Islamic state) in 2014 in a speech delivered from a mosque. In his speech, he declared himself the Caliph of Iraq and Syria.

Qardash is believed to have been extremely close to Baghdadi and the two had been together in 2003 in a prison (Camp Bucca) in Basra in Iraq on charges of having links with al Qaidah.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump had announced on Sunday that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had blown himself up after being surrounded by the US military and chased by Army dogs.

Also known as Karshesh, with another alias Hajji Abdullah al-Afari, the new honcho of the ISIS assumed the position on 26 October 2019, following the death of ISIS’s previous leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the Barisha raid conducted by the Delta Force of the United States Army. Qardash was previously a religious commissar in al Qaidah before joining the Islamic State.
