ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The United Nations and United States added an Iraqi aide to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to their terror lists.

Hajji ‘Abd al-Nasir, aged between 49 and 53, was born in Tal Afar, Iraq, according to the UN. 

“Within the past five years, al-Nasir has served as an ISIS Military Amir in Syria as well as chair of the ISIS Delegated Committee, the council that reports to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and exercises administration control of the terrorist organization’s affairs,” including planning military operations, the US State Department said on Tuesday. 

The UN Security Council added Nasir to its sanctions list on Monday. 

“ISIS is down but not out,” said Ambassador Nathan Sales, the State Department’s counterterror coordinator. 

“As ISIS continues to lose ground on the battlefield, we must starve it of the resources it uses to commit terrorism around the world. Today’s designation is another step towards ensuring the enduring defeat of ISIS.”

Syrian Kurdish and Arabic forces of the SDF working with the US-led coalition are currently battling ISIS in their last major hold out in eastern Syria's Euphrates River valley.

The name of this town has always been "Kobani." I challenge anyone to show me the evidence that the false name "Kobane" existed before 2011.
Kobane or Kobani? History won't care, but some locals will
