Iraq announces death of ‘terrorist leader’ as ISIS battle continues

March 28, 2024
Iraqi forces announced the death of a prominent enemy fighter on Thursday, a potentially significant development in the ongoing fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) and negotiations on the US military presence in the country.
Iraq’s Joint Operations Command said that Samir Khader Sharif Shihan Al-Nimrawi was killed in an operation. Nimrawi was responsible for the transfer of fighters, weapons and explosives between Iraq and Syria, the command said in a statement.
The command did not provide further details on Nimrawi, including where he was killed or his affiliation. They described him as one of the “terrorist leaders whose hands are stained with the blood of innocents in Anbar” — referring to the province in western Iraq. Anbar borders Syria as well as Jordan.
The Iraqi media outlets Shafaq and Al-Rafidain referred to Nimrawi as a leader in ISIS.
