ISIS leader’s son sent straight to hell
Hudhayfah al-Badri and other jihadists were fighting Russian forces and Assad regime troops during an assault on the station, the UK’s Telegraph reported, citing the Amaq agency.
Al-Badri was killed in an “operation against the Nussayriyyah and the Russians at the thermal power station in Homs,” the group said in a statement that included a photo of a young man clutching an assault rifle.
Nussayriyyah is the term used by ISIS for the Alawite religious minority sect of President Bashar al-Assad.
The statement, which identified the man as “the son of the caliph,” did not say when he was killed.
ISIS declared a cross-border “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq in 2014, seizing a third of Iraq during a sweeping offensive — but the jihadists have since lost much ground to Syrian and Iraqi forces as well as US-led operations.
