New Structures and Leaders - ISIS in Iraq May 2020

Beneath the new “caliph,” there are two high-level committees: a five-member Shura (Consultative) Council, headed by Caliph Hajji Juma Awad al-Badri, al-Baghdadi’s brother; and a five-member Delegated Committee (the highest executive body) led by Sami Jassim al-Jubori. Each member of the latter is in charge of a portfolio (security, safe houses, religious affairs, media, and funding). A notable change is that the Delegative Committee has further decentralized the various sectors on a local level, which operate semi-autonomously and are financially self-sufficient, and reduced suicide bombings to a minimum. Altogether ISIS has around 12,000 fighters in Iraq alone.
