Scandalous IS Leader Killed in Mosul: Official

ERBIL – Iraqi pro-government forces killed on Sunday an Islamic State (IS) leader in northern Nineveh province who was well-known for major crimes, a security official said.

“The 90th brigade of al-Hashd al-Shaabi killed Ibrahim el-Yassin, a prominent IS leader, in an ambush in al-Safina village, south of Mosul,” the source, who wished to remain anonymous told Sputnik, as reported by Iraqi News.

The source said that accurate intelligence data was obtained and acted to kill the IS leader while trying to go shopping, who was wanted on charges of assassinating Iraqi security forces in southern Nineveh.

Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi announced the full victory over the IS in December, last year, but the terrorist group has regrouped itself in most of the liberated areas.
