Militant Leadership Monitor – February 2024

The February 2024 issue of Militant Leadership Monitor starts off with a post-mortem of Abdel-Malick, the recently eliminated “Number Two” of Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (ISGS). Following the brief, there is a look at Salaheddin Faroughi, the emir of Jaish-al-Adl (JAA), a militant group seeking autonomy or an independent state for the Baloch people of Iran and Pakistan. In the next article, the publication considers the potential impact if Marwan Barghouti is released; Barghouti is a Palestinian leader serving multiple life sentences in Israeli prison who is widely popular among Palestinians. The publication ends with an examination of Ikramul Haque, deputy head of al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) and head of the group’s propaganda wing who was arrested in May 2023.
