American forces have killed major ISIS leader, Suleiman Abd Shabib al-Jabouri, as we read in one report:
A senior ISIS figher was killed in a helicopter raid in Iraq on Monday, according to the Kurdish regional security council.
The joint attack was carried out by US forces alongside Kurdish counter-terrorism forces to the south of the city of Mosul in northern Iraq. A statement identified one of the dead as Suleiman Abd Shabib al-Jabouri, also known as Abu Saif.
Al-Jabouri was killed with two of his assistants, said the statement.
He is said to be part of the jihadist group’s war council and as such a senior member. It seems the attack was a deliberate targeted at Al-Jabouri.
A separate operation earlier on Monday saw the US-led coalition land a helicopter north of Mosul. Witnesses and Kurdish security sources said the troops captured at least one ISIS member from a vehicle.
