BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) oil minister was killed in eastern Syria this week after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) carried out a joint operation with the U.S.-led Coalition.

According to a statement from the SDF, their troops managed to kill Thabit Sobhi Fahd Al-Ahmad while conducting an operation inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Thabit Sobhi Fahad Al-Ahmad was one of the highest-ranking Islamic State commanders in the Deir Ezzor Governorate. He was responsible for the sale and smuggling of oil from the previously ISIS-occupied areas in Syria and Iraq.

Al-Ahmad was also considered one of the masterminds behind the Islamic State’s economic policies during the terrorist group’s brief reign over much of eastern Syria and western Iraq.

His death is a major blow to the terrorist organization as he was one of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi’s top officials.

Qur’an (8:69) – “So enjoy what you took as booty; the spoils are lawful and good.” Quran (48:20) – “Allah promised you many acquisitions which you will take, then He hastened on this one for you and held back the hands of men from you, and that it may be a sign for the believers and that He may guide you on a right path.” Allah promises Muslims that they will profit materially in their war against unbelievers. It isn’t stealing when it’s taken from an unbeliever. Quran (33:27) – “And He caused you to inherit their land and their… Read more »

@Waseem : Allah doesn’t exists, pfff. Religions are all scams to abuse from useful idiots and make profit on their a$$es. Never asked yourself why “divinities” always show to isolated persons and not to crowds? Never heard about schizophrenia or hallucinogen drugs? “The best way to become a billionaire in dollars? Create a religion!” – L.Ron Hubbard, 1962 QED, he did it, he created the Church of Scientology… In 1,400 years, guess how many people were murdered in the name of Islam? The lowest figure is 270 millions, the highest I know of is 850 millions. In India, they often… Read more »

Long Live Syria : sorry, if I refer to Koran and Haddiths, or even recorded history, e.g. the Islamic “conquest” of Aleppo in 636AD (these handwritten records are stored at the Vatican’s library), they’re not un-Islamic : their “prophet” did exactly the same kind of crimes. He started attacking caravans around the biggest caravanserai of the era, where he was from : Petra (he never went to Mecca! Petra was named Becca by Arabs. The Abassid Caliphuck changed the Arabic “B” into a “M” since during the 2nd Islamic civil war, ibn-Zubayr destroyed the 1st Kaaba in Petra and had… Read more »

this is 3th time in this year im reading about The Islamic State’s oil minister killed.

Over half a dozen time Iraqi, US and Russia also had claimed that isis chief is killed and over 50 times heard claims that isis defeated or finished.

Let’s hope it’s the good one.
It’d be funnier to use him as food for the pigs. Well, he’d surely deserve a special treatment, like forgetting to shoot him before, and having starved the pigs for 2-3 days too…
