New Delhi: The Islamic state group on Wednesday confirmed the killing of one Norwegian and Chinese captive each, after the failure of ransom delivery by the families and States. China has confirmed to building a strategy to bring justice, as this is the first Chinese killing by the militant group.

The extremist group published two pictures of the dead in their monthly magazine Dabiq, published on Wednesday. It also had details of how, when and where the men were killed.

The Chinese government has confirmed the deceased to be a local, named Fan Jinghui. A brief announcement by Chinese Foreign Minister said he was cruelly murdered. He also mentioned that in September one of their citizens seemed to be under the custody of the Islamic State.

The Chinese government had initiated emergency measures to rescue Fan Jinghui, but he was still killed in a cold blooded manner, added the minister.

The Islamic State group, which has recently caused several bomb blasts across the globe is in control of areas in Iraq and Syria. The beheading of the men stood similar to their prior videos telecasting beheadings and atrocities. The demand for cash ransom by the group was also on the same line as for their previous hostages.

Such activities take place on a regular basis since they seized a third of Iraq in a precipitous advancement in 2014.

The public declaration of killings by the Islamic State militants came in the wake of airstrikes from several countries- Russia, U.S and France, and ground attacks by the Kurdish and additional armies.

China has denounced Islamic militancy numerous times and has also expressed concern about it developing a space in the country. However, China has not taken any steps to get itself involved in the issue.

China sees this Islamic state inclination in the country allegedly due to the anger of the Muslim Uighur community, as the Chinese control over their religious and cultural cohesiveness is creating a space for the militant group.

The son of the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has died in a suicide attack mission in the city of Homs in western Syria, according to the IS media al-Nashir News.

Posting the photograph of a young boy, purportedly Hudhayfah al-Badri, al-Baghdadi’s son, the outlet said he lost his life in an operation against the Russian forces deployed in Homs and the Syrian government forces, referred to as Nusayriyyah by IS.

“Hudhayfah al-Badri (may Allah accept him), the son of the Caliph (may Allah safeguard him), was killed in an inghimasi [suicide] operation against the Nusayriyyah and the Russians at the thermal power station in Homs Willayah,” the news outlet reported.

Inghimasi refers to suicide operations in which a fighter, clad with explosive belt and armed with regular weapons, attacks an enemy position before detonating himself to inflict as much damage on the enemy as possible.

The U.S. military said it has seen the reports of al-Badri’s death but declined any confirmation.

“It would be inappropriate for us to comment on an attack on forces outside the Coalition. We have nothing more to provide,” U.S. Central Command told VOA.

An Iraqi national, al-Baghdadi, whose real name is Ibrahim Awad al-Badri, announced the Islamic State caliphate in the city of Mosul in June 2014 and made himself its caliph. The leader has since become the world’s most wanted man, with a $25 million bounty on his head.

Al-Baghdadi’s fate is still unknown, with various reports claiming his death and injury several times, including a claim by the Russian Defense Ministry that he might have been hit by a Russian airstrike in 2017.

Those claims have been rejected by U.S. officials and the whereabouts of the elusive leader remain unknown.

Al-Baghdadi’s infamous role in IS has put a spotlight on his family. In March 2014, al-Baghdadi’s wife, Sujidah al-Dulaimi, was released, along with her two sons and daughter, in exchange for 13 nuns taken captive by al-Qaida-linked al-Nusra Front militants.
