Ni'ma Abd Nayef al-Jabouri (Arabic: نعمة عبد نايف الجبوري‎), known by his nom de guerre Abu Fatima al-Jaheishi (Arabic: أبو فاطمة الجحيشي‎) or Abu Fatima al-Jiburi, was initially in charge of the ISIS operations in southern Iraq before he moved to the northern city of Kirkuk.[1] He is now the Governor of the South and Central Euphrates region in the Islamic State and a senior member in the IS hierarchy.[2][3]

The available information indicates that as of 2016, Abu Fatima is alive and part of the inner circle of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, serving as his deputy in the position of the overall leader for Iraq. He succeeded Abu Muslim al-Turkmani,[4] who was killed on 18 August 2015.
