Death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi raises questions about who will replace the Daesh leader and on average analysts say there are not enough candidates. Othman is a Tunisian citizen who presides over the Daesh shura council with a legislative role while Abdullah presides over the Executive Committee, which is an executive body.

The possible replacement of the terrorist group was further curtailed when Kurdish fighters said it killed the spokesman of the militant group Abu Hassan al-Muhajir in a joint operation with the United States on Monday night.

Othman is a Tunisian citizen who presides over the Daesh shura council with a legislative role while Abdullah presides over the Executive Committee.

An Iraqi expert on Daesh, Hisham al-Hashemi, said two of the candidates were Abu Othman al-Tunsi and Abu Saleh al-Juzrawi or better known as Hajj Abdullah.

Othman is a Tunisian citizen who presides over the Daesh shura council with a legislative role while Abdullah presides over the Executive Committee, which is an executive body.

However, the two candidates are controversial to replace al-Baghdadi, he said, because they are not Syrians or Iraqis considering that most of the Daesh guerrilla forces are from both countries.

Aymen Jawad Tamimi also named Abdullah as a potential successor of al-Baghdadi

“It may lead to defection”, al-Hashemi said.

While academic Aymen Jawad Tamimi also named Abdullah as a potential successor of al-Baghdadi.

“He appeared in Daesh’s leaked document as a deputy of Baghdadi and to me, he is alive”, Tamimi said.

Anyone replacing Baghdadi faces the difficult task of leading a fragile organization that is now a silent group, after repeated operations have left the group losing its territory in Iraq and Syria.
