BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – A high ranking Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) commander was reportedly killed in southeast Deir Ezzor this past weekend after the U.S.-led Coalition attacked the terrorist group’s base.
According to pro-opposition STEP News Agency, ‘Abdel-Rahman Al-Rawi was killed in a U.S.-led Coalition attack on the Deir Ezzor Governorate town of Baghouz Al-Fouqani.
The U.S.-led Coalition attack reportedly struck Al-Rawi’s command center inside of Baghouz Al-Fouqani; they would also kill more than ten of his terrorist associates.
The death of Al-Rawi comes just days after the U.S.-led Coalition troops captured one of the highest ranking Daesh commanders in a special operation in southeast Deir Ezzor.
Daesh recently launched a large-scale offensive against the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in southeastern Deir Ezzor.
The terrorist group managed to score a big advance during the first two days of the offensive against the Syrian Democratic Forces; however, the U.S.-backed troops would ultimately roll back the Daesh militants after launching a big counter-offensive yesterday.
