The ISIS terrorist group admitted for the first time the death of Shaker Wahib, aka Abu Waheeb, after the US-led Coalition announced his death nine months ago.
ISIS leadership did not give much attention to Abu Waheeb's death by declaring his death vaguely in a report concerning one of its former leaders.
In its weekly edition of al-Naba, ISIS noted that one of its famous leaders Abu Nazeer al-Iraqi was killed in a battle with Abu Waheeb.
Abu Waheeb's fame rose in 2013 when he appeared in a video that shows ISIS militants execute the drivers of a Syrian truck.
Abu Waheeb appeared in other videos in which he was leading ISIS operations while wearing special forces uniform before vanishing from the scene in 2016.
