“Our beloved Omar Shishani still commands The Caliphate.”
It seems the Caliphate is out to troll again. A prominent Islamic State account which uses various Twitter handles has revealed what they proclaim to be a recent image of Chechen Commander Omar al-Shishani. It was followed by another photo which I can authenticate as being recent to the web, but not in IS’s inner-circle collection of images. They take many; so to me this proves nothing more then he must be a zombie at this point in time.
Either way, it will increase chatter within Arabic circles which could be of use for the US-led Coalition which has been eager to pick off prominent Islamic State leaders or “Amir’s.”
