Erdogan warned European leaders they should "revise their stances" toward Turkey, where scores of the militants are imprisoned.
The group identified the new leader as Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi.
Studies of leadership decapitation suggest groups like ISIS often find ways to survive.
The ISIS leader's death is a signature achievement of his presidency, but Trump's official account of the terrorist's downfall has come under scrutiny.

The president praised the canine for aiding in the operation that resulted in the death of the leader of the so-called Islamic State.

The House speaker demanded that the White House brief lawmakers on the operation, which led to the death of the ISIS leader.
In the graphic account of the so-called Islamic State leader's death, the president described him as having been "whimpering and crying and screaming.”

The headline on the obituary for the leader of the so-called Islamic State has since been changed, but critics are outraged.

The former defense secretary warned that national security is "tied inextricably to our alliances," following Trump's decision to abandon the Syrian Kurds.
But President Trump says it’s OK for Turkey and the U.S.-allied Kurds to fight. "Let them!" he tweeted.
A U.S. military official said the situation across northeastern Syria was "deteriorating rapidly."
Turkey’s continued push into Syria comes days after President Donald Trump cleared the way for Turkey’s air and ground offensive.
