A top Islamic State (IS) terrorist reportedly responsible for media outreach was killed while working with Khalifa Haftar-affiliated forces in Libya, said a media organ affiliated with the jihadist group.
Mohamed Bin Ahmed al-Falata was killed “by forces of the Libyan army,” reported a magazine affiliated with the terrorist group.
Al-Falata, code-named Abu Assem al-Muhajer, was born in neighbouring Sudan before his family moved to Saudi Arabia, Libyan daily Al Marsad reported Friday. After he returned to Sudan, he plotted attacks there, but was arrested and later released. After gaining freedom, he joined the Daesh terror group, said the paper, without giving details of his prison term or why he was released.
After also pursuing terrorist actions in Chad, he moved to Libya to support the jihadist group there, said the newspaper.
