TBILISI, DFWatch–The Pentagon has denied the capture of Islamic State commander Omar Al-Shishani, a citizen of Georgia whose birth name is Tarkhan Batirashvili.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Defense Department told Ria Novosti that the information released by the Interior Ministry of Iraq about Batirashvili being captured is not true.

Russian media Monday reported the capture of Batirashvili along with two other commanders of the terrorist organization and alleged killing of several other militants. The source was given as a number of Arabic websites.

Tarkhan Batirashvili has been reported captured or dead several times, but the information has never been confirmed.
