US on hunt for new Islamic State’s leader

US President Donald Trump says, the United States is on the hunt for new Islamic State’s leader and knows of his whereabouts. Addressing the Economic Club in New York, Trump, however, did not name of the new target.

Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi was named to replace Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as head of the terror group. Baghdadi was captured and killed by the US.

US officials and military commanders have repeatedly said that pockets of insurgents remain in Iraq and Syria and are still intent on conducting attacks.
