ISIS’ top financial chief and many other senior leaders of the Islamic State were reportedly killed by an air raid last Friday, according to the United States Defence Secretary, Ash Carter.

This high-profile ISIS figure, Abd ar-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli (often refered to under his alias, Haji Iman), reportedly took care of of ISIS’ finances and oil exports. Haji Iman is believed to have been ISIS’ second-in-command, taking orders only from Abu al-Baghdadi himself.

Not much is known of the man other than his appareance. He can be seen below:

While the details of the airstrike and its location were not specified, the US administration did take credit for the “likely death” of Haji Iman during a briefing at the Pentagon.

US official Ash Carter said the American government was furthermore in the process of helping the Iraqi Army prepare for a major operation to liberate Iraq’s second largest city, Mosul.

Additionally, the US Air Force is currently heavily engaged in aiding its Kurdish YPG & SDF allies in their struggle against ISIS in northern Syria.

Meanwhile, some 600 ISIS fighters are also believed to have been killed in just 72 hours by joint forces of the Syrian Arab Army and Russian Airforce during their battle and subsequent liberation of the ancient city of Palmyra 3 days ago.
