According to the Arabic edition of Sky News, as a result of air strikes by Western coalition to the East of the Iraqi city of Ramadi in Anbar province was destroyed by the mufti of the terrorist group «Islamic state» Abu Dujana al-Masri.
Despite the fact that al-Masri was only 24 years old, he was considered the Supreme spiritual authority of the group and was included in its command. Abu Janda, whose real name is Mahmoud Ghandour, and as his alias, was born in Egypt.
In 2013 he graduated from the University of ain Shams in Cairo. In his youth he was fond of sport and theatre and worked as a presenter on University radio. However, having become acquainted with the ideas of radical Islam, he abandoned his «unjust» interests.
According to sources quoted by the channel, together with the spiritual leader of the jihadists was eliminated another influential field commander Amar Hamid al-Azawi.
