“Baghdadi was an iron head. He was not involved in day-to-day operations. All Baghdadi said was yes or no. No planning,” an IS group analyst told Newsweek magazine, adding, In his view, since Baghdadi was injured in an American attack in 2017, he has stepped down.

According to Fadhil Abu Ragheef, a former Iraqi government security analyst, speaking to The Times in August, Baghdadi had given Qardash more power in recent months, preparing him to one day take over leadership of the group.

Abdullah Qardash is described as a cruel, authoritarian, strategist and highly respected man among members of the Islamic State, according to the international press.
