ISIL financial chief killed in Iraq’s Mosul

The ISIL Takfiri terrorists’ financial chief has been killed by a roadside bomb while traveling in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, a report says.


“ISIL Finance Minister Mohammed Zaalan al-Afari was killed in a booby trap ambush on the Gayara-Mosul road  after he took part in the opening of a women’s prison for those not committed to sexual jihad,” Saeed Mamuzini, a media officer of the Kurdistan Democratic Party’s (KDP) 17th branch in Mosul, was quoted by Rudaw as saying on Tuesday.


According to the private online newspaper published in Erbil, Afari was a former Iraqi army officer who joined the Takfiri ranks in 2004 and allegedly had close ties with ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and the slain al-Qaeda leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.


“Alongside Afari four other militants were killed by the booby trap,” said Mamuzini, adding that the Mosul Independent Youth group have claimed responsibility for the attack.
