Three senior ISIS leaders have been killed in air raids conducted in Iraq and Syria over the past three weeks, the US-led coalition revealed Wednesday.
In a press statement, the coalition said killing ISIS top leaders has a negative impact on the terrorist group’s leadership and propaganda.
It also limits ISIS capabilities in planning and carrying out terror attacks in Iraq, Syria and abroad, it noted.
ISIS leader Abu Faisal and his deputy Abu Qudama al-Iraqi were killed in an airstrike on the Euphrates Basin on December 1. Mostafa Kamal Jassim Mohamed al-Zawi was also killed near al-Shirqat in Iraq on November 28, it added.
On December 9, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared final victory over ISIS after Iraqi forces drove its last remnants from the country, three years after the terrorist group captured about a third of Iraq’s territory.
