A US-led coalition airstrike has reportedly killed a senior jihadi leader in Raqqa, northeast Syria, according to a report by military sources.
Abu Jandal al-Kuwaiti, the commander of the Islamic State’s (ISIS) military operations in Raqqa, was killed along with a number of his escorts when a US airstrike hit their convoy on Tuesday morning.
“The ISIS convoy was hit near the Jaabar town in western Raqqa,” a spokesman for the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) told.
Al-Kuwaiti, also known as Abdulmuhsin al-Zaghelan al-Tarish, has been leading ISIS militants in Raqqa.
