Turkmani is believed to be Baghdadi's number two. Under Saddam Hussein, Turkmani was a loyal Baathist, and reportedly served as a member of military intelligence and as a senior Special Forces officer. Today, he is responsible for overseeing the ISIS operations in Iraq. He sits on the powerful Shura Council, but also leads the Provincial Council, tasked with overseeing the governors appointed to lead the new states' 18 provinces.
