The Head of IS has been killed in Sahara by the French troops as per President Macron.

Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahrawi formed Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (ISGS) in 2015. The group is blamed for most attacks in the region, including the targeted killing of French aid workers in 2020.

Mr. Macron called Sahrawi’s death “another major success in our fight against terrorist groups in the Sahel”. The Sahel is a vast, three million sq km area that stretches across Africa south of the Sahara desert, from Senegal in the west to Somalia in the east.

Sahrawi, who was born in the disputed territory of Western Sahara in 1973, and had been a member of the Polisario Front which is fighting for independence from Morocco. He then became a part of Al-Qaeda and got involved in kidnapping Spanish and Algerian diplomats. Last August, Sahrawi personally ordered the killing of six French charity workers and their Nigerien guides and drivers, the French presidency said.

However, the news demands confirmation from security sources as well.
