Adam (Guram) Gumashvili, 44, from Jokolo village in Pankisi Gorge was killed in Syria. The wife of the deceased informed the family and relatives in Pankisi about it in the morning of November 30, 2018. The family already receives condolences in the village of Jokolo. 

As the relatives told the Pankisi community radio RadioWAY, Adam Gumashvili passed away on November 29. They do not know more details about his death. 

Adam Gumashvili was one of influential members of the terrorist organization ISIS. He had close relationship with the former leader of the Islam State Tarkhan Batirashvili and was the member of his team.

Adam Gumashvili was the son of Suleyman Gumashvili, poet and the former chair of the Council of Elders in Pankisi Gorge. According to the RadioWAY, Adam Gumashvili went to Syria in 2013 and later he took his son, 18-years old Sultan Gumashvili with him. Sultan was studying in the Jokolo public school. He died in Syria in August 2016. Two wives and 6 children of Adam Gumashvili live in the Pankisi Gorge; he has two more wives in Syria.
