Chechen head reports death of one of ISIL leaders who threatened to invade Russia
The murder of Tarkhan Batirashvili, a commander of a radical Islamic grouping of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), was announced today by the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov.
"The enemy of Islam Tarkhan Batirashvili, who called himself Omar al-Shishani, is killed. This will be the end of anyone who would think of threatening Russia and the Chechen people," the head of Chechnya wrote today in his blog in the Instagram.
According to the publication of the Bloomberg of October 9, earlier, in his telephone conversation with his father, Omar al-Shishani promised to invade Russia.
Let us remind you here that this is the second report of the death of al-Shishani. Thus, in the second half of September 2013, Kurdish rebels reported on the Twitter that Omar al-Shishani was among those killed during one of their encounters with jihadists. The news then was spread by many media; however, the Kurds failed to present any evidence of al-Shishani's death.
