In joint operation, Kurdish and US Special Forces kill top ISIS leader in Mosul

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Kurdish and US Special Forces killed a top leader of the Islamic State (ISIS) and two of his assistants in a joint operation in Mosul on Monday.

“In a special joint operation during which Kurdish Anti-Terror Forces and American Special Forces landed in the center of Daesh-held territory in Hamam Alil south of Mosul by helicopter, Daesh military leader Salam Abd Shabib al-Jbouri known as Abu Saif and two of his assistants were killed,” the Kurdish forces said in a statement.

Daesh is the derogatory Arabic name for ISIS.

The operation was carried out Monday, reportedly after careful monitoring and collection of detailed intelligence.

Abu Saif was an ISIS member and previously was the group’s “general commander” in Mosul.

He was monitoring ISIS offensives in Mosul and Makhmour, the statement explained.
