Abu Suleiman al-Naser[1] is the “war minister” of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI). Little is known about Abu Suleiman. He succeeded Abu Ayyub al-Masri, the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq who was killed along with ISI leader Abu Omar al-Baghdadi in a joint operation by US and Iraqi forces in Tikrit in April 2010, as the Minister of War for the Islamic State of Iraq. The new war minister signed with the name Al-Nasser Lideen Allah Abu Suleiman, a nom de guerre that translates "Defender of God’s Religion, Father of Suleiman". His real name is Neaman Salman Mansour al Zaidi.[2]

Iraqi security forces claimed to have killed Suleiman in February 2011 in the town of Hīt, west of Baghdad.[3] However, the ISI denied his death a month later.[4]
