US Drone Kill Daesh Leader In Syria

One of the militant group’s top five leaders, Maher Al-Agal, the leader of Daesh in Syria, was killed in a US airstrike, according to the US military on Tuesday.

Maher Al-Agal was killed in the drone strike in northwest Syria, according to a statement from US Central Command, while a close friend of his was gravely hurt.

“Extensive planning went into this operation to ensure its successful execution. An initial review indicates there were no civilian casualties,” the statement added.

Al-Agal, according to the report, was in charge of creating Daesh networks outside of Iraq and Syria.

The murder would deal the militant group, which had recently lost a significant amount of territory, another setback in its attempts to reform as a guerilla force.

The top Daesh official detonated himself in February during a US military operation in Syria.
