Death of Sahrawi is a blow for ISIS in Sahel: French minister


The death of the leader of ISIS in the Sahel region Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahrawi is a decisive blow and ISIS in the region will have difficulty to replace him, French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly said on Thursday.

“The death of Sahrawi is a decisive blow to [ISIS] in Sahel and its cohesion. It will have difficulty replacing its leader with someone of that importance,” Parly told a news conference.

President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday that French military forces had killed Sahrawi, the leader of ISIS in the Greater Sahara.
