An ISIS terrorist, identified as Abu Hamzah al-Quraishi, released an audio broadcast on his website where he spoke about coronavirus, which has killed hundreds of thousands across the world. He said he was glad COVID-19 was destroying the West and called for terror fighters to carry out more attacks.

During the 39-minute audio broadcast titled ‘And the Disbelievers Will Know who Gets the Good End’, he said: “We rejoice today with the great torment of God that befell you.

“God, by his will, sent a punishment to tyrants of this time and their followers which can’t be seen by the naked eye.

“Today we are pleased for this punishment of God for you.”

On the tape released on Thursday, May 28, Quraishi urged jihadis “to prepare whatever strength they could and be as hard as they could on the enemies of God and to raid their places”.

He said: “A greater punishment will befall you with our hands.

“Don’t let a single day pass without making their lives awful.”

The broadcast was the third such audio since ISIS named Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi as its new leader after they confirmed the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi by US special forces in Syria last year.

Meanwhile, reports suggest one of ISIS’s top leaders, Abdul Nasser Qardash, has been captured by Iraq’s Intelligence Service.

Abdul Nasser Qardash was captured in Iraq, according to reports.

Iraq’s official news agency INA, reported that the National Intelligence Service announced his arrest, however it is unclear how or when the capture took place.

A security source is said to have told the publication the National Intelligence Service had managed to arrest the alleged Abdul Nasser Qardash.


The terrorist had been high up in the organisation while Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was leader.

Writing on Twitter, Feras Kilani, Arabic Special Correspondent at the BBC, wrote: “In intentional play with the phrase ‘potential candidate to succeed Al-Baghdadi’ used by Iraqi intelligence, Abdul Nasser Qirdash, because of his importance, is not Abdullah Qirdash, the senior leader of the organization, and the latter is not from behind al-Baghdadi, but rather al-Qurashi, whose name is Amir Muhammad Abd al-Rahman al-Salabi, which was confirmed by Washington.
