I do not believe this news to be true because this killing is being claimed by the Peshmerga who are completely in bed with NATO/US/Israel/UK
Until there is more verification of this claim, I am going to say worth noting, but absolutely worth questioning.
Long time readers will know who/what Abu Omar al-Shishani is claimed to be: Fierce ISIS fighter
Long time readers here will also be aware of what/ who I believe him to really be: Specials ops/NATO affilited
