( Baghdad - On Sunday, al-Hashd al-Sha'bi leader Jabbar al-Maamouri announced the killing of the so-called ISIS executioner, along with one of his companions, during an incursion into the district of Sharqat north of Salahuddin.
Maamouri said in a statement obtained by Iraq, "A special force from al-Hashd al-Shaabi penetrated Sharqat District through secret paths and succeeded in killing a man known as Abu Eman, who is also called the ISIS executioner, along with one of his companions, by an ambush on a main road. "
He added, "Abu Eman, a former commissioner in the security services of the ousted regime, swore allegiance to ISIS after the fall of Sharqat," adding that, "Months later, he became a confidant of the organization's leaders and was entrusted with executing ISIS court's sentences including beheadings. "
"ISIS is suffering from confusion, especially after the tactical operations carried out by al-Hashd al-Shaabi forces which succeeded in terminating prominent leaders of the organization," said Maamouri.
Noteworthy, Sharqat District north of Salahuddin Province is under the control of ISIS since June 2014 and is considered as one of the main strongholds of the organization in the province. TAGSBaghdad
