New ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraish is a & # 39; nobody & # 39; that & # 39; not too long for the world & # 39; is when he is in Iraq or Syria, the US official says
- US official says the new ISIS leader is a & # 39; nobody & # 39; is with little clear reputation
- Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi was announced last week as the new leader
- Officially said IS social media suggests that even followers don't know much about him
The new leader of the Islamic State group is & # 39; nobody & # 39; with little clear reputation, but the United States hope he will be killed soon, an American official said Wednesday.
The group announced Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi as its new leader last week after a US-led raid killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the ultra-violent movement.
A senior US official who spoke on condition of anonymity said that monitoring the social media of the Islamic State indicates that even followers did not know much about Hashimi.
The group announced last week Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi as its new leader after a US-led raid killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the ultra-violent movement.
& # 39; That has become a major problem in the ISIS world for social media, if you want. This guy seems to be nobody, & # 39; told the official reporter.
& # 39; We are not impressed by what we know little about him. And when he's in Iraq or Syria, we don't think he's anyway too tall for the world & he said.
The officer refused to offer further details, including whether Hashimi, like Baghdadi, had been detained by US forces at any time.

President Donald Trump tweeted from the group's new leader last week that & # 39; we know exactly who he & # 39; but few details have been revealed about Hashimi.
Baghdadi, who led the Islamic State group since 2014, had become & # 39; the world's most wanted person for the horrific attacks of militants in the region and abroad.
The Islamic State group confirmed that the 48-year-old Iraqis died in the attack in the northwestern province of Idlib in Syria.
