BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – Another high ranking Islamic State (ISIS) commander was killed this month along the Iraqi-Syrian border, following a large attack by Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (var. Hashd Al-Sha’abi).

According to Iraq-based Al-Sumaria TV, the Iraqi forces killed the Islamic State leader, Abu Huzeifa Al-Iraqi, during a surprise raid on his compounds near the Syrian-Iraqi border on Wednesday.

“Al-Iraqi was hiding inside a tunnel near the Iraqi-Syrian border when the troops stormed his hideout,” the Al-Sumaria TV source pointed out, as quoted by Iraq News.

Prior to the death of Al-Iraqi this week, the Iraqi Armed Forces killed another high-ranking Islamic State leader in the Huwaija region of the Kirkuk Governorate.
