Default Islamic State chief cleric killed in Syria air strike: US-led coalition

Islamic State chief cleric killed in Syria air strike: US-led coalition

JUNE 21 2017 -


Washington: The US-led coalition fighting Islamic State confirmed in a statement on Tuesday that it killed Turki al-Bin'ali, the group's self-proclaimed 'Grand Mufti' or chief cleric, in an air strike in Syria on May 31.

Bin'ali was one of Islamic State's most visible preachers and appeared regularly in its propaganda videos. He was placed under US sanctions for helping Islamic State recruit foreign fighters, according to the US Treasury.

"Al-Bin'ali had a central role in recruiting foreign terrorist fighters and provoking terrorist attacks around the world," the coalition said in a statement.

"As chief cleric to ISIS since 2014, he provided propaganda to incite murder and other atrocities, attempted to legitimise the creation of the 'caliphate,' and was a close confidant of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi."
