Somalia’s Islamic State affiliate vows support for the group’s new leader

Somalia’s Islamic State affiliate, one of the most important outposts of the militant group, swore allegiance in a statement on Sunday to the new leader ISIS by the Abu Ibrahim Al-Hashimi Al-Qurayshi who was appointed on Thursday to replace the organization leader following the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Somalia’s Province posted pictures on Telegram of around a dozen fighters standing among trees, with a caption saying they were pledging allegiance to Quraishi.

Quraishi was named as the organization’s leader on Thursday in an audio message that also confirmed Baghdadi’s death and vowed revenge against the United States.

U.S. Special Forces killed Baghdadi in a raid in northwest Syria while the United States has released the first video of the strike that killed the leader of the Islamic State in northern Syria.
