The U.S. led anti-Islamic State coalition killed three senior ISIS leaders in recent airstrikes, Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) announced in a Tuesday statement.
The pace of U.S. strikes on ISIS have dramatically slowed in recent weeks after the near collapse of the terror group’s caliphate. ISIS is largely confined to small dessert pockets and surrounded by various militias of different allegiances. U.S. strikes continue, however, to pick off high level operatives of the group.
The dead ISIS leaders include “Abu Faysal, a senior Daesh leader,” along with “his deputy Abu Qudamah al-Iraqi,” and “Mustafa Kamal Jasim Muhammad al-Zawi.” OIR noted that al-Zawi was a “senior leader courier” for ISIS. The strike against Zawi was notably in Iraq where Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi recently proclaimed the fight against ISIS to be over.
