In late February 2015 there were reports that a senior leader within the Islamic State (IS) was killed in Iraq’s Anbar province. Abu Muslim al-Turkmani one of the top two lieutenants to the Islamic State’s (IS) head Abu Bakr Baghdadi was said to have died in a Coalition air strike along the Syrian border. The problem was that he supposedly died in December 2014 in a similar attack. To further complicate the matter there was other reporting that he was not even amongst the dead. If true this would be another major hit to the organization that has lost several other important leaders in the last several months, but the problem as ever is confirming these deaths.
