One of the masterminds of the Reina nightclub attack in Istanbul has been killed in a U.S. raid on ISIS terrorists in Syria, the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) said on Friday.

Axar.az reports citing to Dailysabah the U.S.'s Middle East command confirmed the death of Abdurakhmon Uzbeki, saying he was killed by American forces near the eastern Syrian city of Mayadin.

Uzbeki was a close associate of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Central Command spokesman Col. John Thomas told reporters.

Uzbeki, who was killed April 6, is said to have helped carry out the deadly attack that killed 39 victims at the nightclub.

"We've clearly linked him with the Istanbul" attack, Thomas said.

In addition to the attack in Istabul, Uzbeki was a key facilitator for ISIS's funds and foreign fighters, Thomas said.

A lone ISIS gunman armed with a Kalashnikov had gunned down 39 revelers in the nightclub by the Bosporus shore during a New Year's party. The gunman was captured after a few weeks on the run.
