ISIS have suffered huge losses recently with several high-profile figures killed by coalition forces
Abu Abdullah was rigging a bomb on a roadside in southern Mosul when the device went off, killing him and another depraved jihadi.
Described as a ‘bomb expert’, Abdullah was a second-tier leader in the barbaric terror group and had previously been responsible for dozens of detonations, according to a security expert.
He was renowned for rigging buildings with detonation devices as the terror cell try to inflict as much damage as possible as they are forces out of Mosul by a US-led coalition of troops.
Abdullah’s death marks yet another blow for ISIS after a number of leading figures were killed in recent weeks.

The depraved jihadi, nicknamed “Abu Sayyaf”, was reportedly killed by unknown individuals west of the ancient city of Nineveh.
A security source told Iraqi News: “An unknown armed group killed on Sunday the Islamic State’s most famous decapitator, the so-nicknamed ‘Abu Sayyaf’.
