Airstrike Kills ISIS Top Leader: Pentagon
Pentagon revealed Monday one of the top leaders of ISIS was killed along with three other from the militant group in an airstrike last week in Anbar province of Iraq.
Press Secretary Peter Cook said the four were traveling in a vehicle near the town of Rutbah in western Iraq. These days it is not safe to be an ISIS leader in Iraq as well as Syria as they have been hit hard in recent time by coalition efforts and the killing of Abu Wahib is another example.
Wahib started with al-Qaeda in Iraq and was a legacy member of the ISIS. In the mid-2000s he was detained by US forces. In 2011 he was transferred to a prison in Iraq, but shortly after he had broken out.
Several times earlier his death was falsely reported. Earlier this year too he was believed to have been killed in an airstrike.
One of his cold-bloodedness promotional video depicted him harassing and murdering three Syrian civilian truck drivers in 2013 accusing them of being Syrian Shiites.
Earlier this year in March another leader Abd al-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli, second in command in eastern Syria, was killed too by US airstrikes.http://www.dailynewsz.com/airstrike-kills-isis-top-leader-pentagon/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Airstrike-Kills-ISIS-Top-Leader-Pentagon-1024x681.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Airstrike-Kills-ISIS-Top-Leader-Pentagon-300x300.jpgworld newsiraq,ISIS,pentagon,syria
