One of the most high-profile members of ISIS, Ismail Alwan Salman al-Ithawi was extradited from Turkey earlier the year after fleeing there from the terror cult’s crumbling “caliphate” in Syria.
The crazed jihadi is said to be the deputy to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Al-Baghdadi is most notable for being reported dead multiple times before popping up alive days or weeks later.
Judicial spokesman, Abdel Sattar Bayraqdar, said: “The Karkh criminal court in Baghdad sentenced to death by hanging one of the most prominent leaders of IS, who served as a deputy of Baghdadi.”
The 55-year-old was tracked down to Turkey’s northwestern Sakarya province before he was captured.
The breakthrough in locating him came after his terror cell was “infiltrated”.
Turkish reports state al-Ithawi is from the Iraqi city of Ramadi and was the ISIS “minister” in charge of religious matters as well as appointing new ISIS “officials”.
