IS leader killed in Syria operation


US President Joe Biden said on Thursday that he ordered the operation against Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi last night.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights previously reported that 13 civilians were killed in the fighting, including four children. The military coalition also bombed targets north of the Idlib region. The fighting lasted into the night. The US Department of Defense confirmed an anti-terrorist mission with US Army special forces. “The mission was successful,” it said in a statement on Thursday.

In the civil war country Syria, a military coalition led by the USA is fighting the terrorist militia Islamic State (IS). In the summer of 2014, IS took control of large areas in northern Iraq. Shortly thereafter, the jihadists proclaimed a caliphate that included regions in neighboring Syria. The terrorist militia was defeated militarily in March 2019, but is still active in both countries and repeatedly carries out attacks.

Details on that shortly.
