Syria: who was Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, Islamic state group's n°2 killed near Aleppo? A senior figure in the IS group’s leadership ranks, Adnani was a familiar figure in jihadist media circles with his frequent calls for attacks on “the infidels", including Western as well as Shiite Muslim targets. On August 18, 2012, the US State Department put al-Adnani on the Special Designated Global Terrorist List with a $5 million reward for any information on the IS group militant. While Adnani was widely known as the IS group’s official spokesperson, putting out a global call for attacks, many experts believe he was much more than a mere mouthpiece for the jihadist group.
