According to the Pentagon, leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in Libya was reportedly killed by a U.S. airstrike on November 13th.
“Department of Defense has confirmed that ‘Abu Nabil’, aka Wissam Najm Abd Zayd al Zubaydi, an Iraqi national who was a longtime Al-Qaeda operative and the senior ISIL leader in Libya, is dead as a result of a U S military airstrike in Libya undertaken on November 13,”
-Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said.
The Pentagon Press Secretary further added:
“While not the first US strike against terrorists in Libya, this was the first US strike against an ISIL leader in Libya and it demonstrates we will go after ISIL leaders wherever they operate.”
The internationally recognized terrorist group has yet to issue a statement regarding this allegation from the Pentagon; however, it does not seem to phase ISIS, as they have recently expanded their operations inside of Libya this month.
