Barely A Week After Former Leader's Death, ISIS Appoints New One, Abdullah Qardash
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS already has a new leader barely 480 hours after the death of the former.
The former leader of the sect, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had blown up himself and three children to escape the United States military raid in Syria, and according to reports, his successor is a former Iraqi military army officer, Abdullah Qardash (sometimes spelt Karshesh).

Not much is known about the new head, but he reportedly once served under Saddam Hussein and has taken over a number of duties from al-Baghdadi prior to his demise this week when he detonated a suicide vest.
According to an official,
‘Baghdadi was a figurehead. He was not involved in operations or day-to-day. All Baghdadi did was say yes or no, no planning.’
The news of the succession comes just as experts have warned that the Islamic States and extremist jihadist movements have over the last one-and-a-half decades repeatedly shown resilience after the death of key leaders.
Their militants remain in place around the world, and the group seems to have been ready for the death of Baghdadi and could even use it as a rallying case for launching new attacks.
