General Info:
Amir Mohammed Abdul Rahman al-Mawli al-Salbi is one of founding members of the Islamic State and has allegedly lead massive terror operations across the globe. A graduate in Sharia Law from the University of Mosul, he claims to be a direct descendant of Prophet Mohammed.

Salbi has also said to have led the exodus of Iraq’s Yazidi minority. Back in 2014, a massive genocide was committed against the Yazidi community by ISIS who were killed, tortured, forcibly converted to Islam, their women raped and sold to jihadists as sexual slaves. Salbi is said to be the main person behind executing this.

He is likewise known by the nom de guerre Haji Abdullah, and in certain circles as Abdullah Qardash, but the Iraqi authorities propose the last was a different Islamic State figure who kicked the bucket two years back.

Early life:
Salbi rose through the positions helped by his experience as an Islamic researcher and gave strict decisions that endorsed the endeavored destruction against Yazidis and the purging of the Nieveh Plains in northern Iraq during the stature of the Islamic State frenzy. Salbi holds a degree in sharia law from the University of Mosul. In 2004 he was kept by US powers in Camp Bucca jail in southern Iraq where he met Baghdadi. He is accepted to have at any rate one child.

Before Baghdadi’s demise in a US military strike in north-west Syria on 27 October, the US state division put a $5m abundance on Salbi’s head and on two other senior individuals from the gathering. Salbi was touted as a potential swap for the feeble Baghdadi in August yet affirmation of his arrangement took a while to verify.

From that point forward he is comprehended to have been attempting to solidify the new Islamic State administration, almost every one of whom separated from Salbi himself are drawn from another age who were too youthful to even think about playing jobs in ISIS establishing fights against US powers from 2004 or in the Iraqi common war that followed.

The chase for Salbi has stretched out to Turkey where his sibling, Adel Salbi, is an agent in an ideological group called the Turkmen Iraqi Front. The new Islamic State pioneer is thought to have kept up associations with his sibling until he was named as pioneer.

Knowledge authorities have little understanding into his whereabouts yet propose he is probably not going to have followed Baghdadi to Idlib territory and would have liked to remain in a little band of towns toward the west of Mosul.

New leader of the Islamic State:
Salbi was named pioneer hours after the passing of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in October. The name that the gathering gave for Baghdadi’s substitution at the time, Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi, was a nom de guerre not perceived by other senior pioneers or knowledge organizations.

In the three months since the strike that killed Baghdadi, a more full picture of Salbi has been sorted out by territorial and western government operatives, setting him at the focal point of Islamic State basic leadership – and that of its trailblazers – and depicting him as a solidified veteran in a similar vein as Baghdadi, resolute in his dependability to the radical gathering.

Salbi is viewed as one of the most compelling ideologues among the now exhausted positions of the Islamic State. Naturally introduced to an Iraqi Turkmen family in the town of Tal Afar, he is a one of only a handful few non-Arabs among the initiative.
