ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—The Islamic State (ISIS) governor of Mosul was killed in an airstrike Friday night, said a Kurdish official.

Ismat Rajab, head of the 14th branch of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) said that coalition fighter jets targeted the vehicle of Shakir al-Hamdani, the ISIS governor of Mosul, killing him and a number of his bodyguards.

Rajab who represents the KDP in the Mosul area said that the airstrike hit al-Hamdani’s vehicle in Salamiya, south of the city.

This is the second ISIS governor to be killed since coalition air forces went into battle against the radical group last summer.

Radhwan Hamoudi known as Abu Laith, the first ISIS governor of Mosul was killed in an airstrike outside the city on November 19.

Leave it to Rudaw to legitimize daash terrorists, it's DAASH not "the Islamic State", and they don't call their head murderer/executioner "governor", they call them "Amir", this particular terrorist was holding several Ezidi sex slaves. Dear Rudaw we've lost more than a thousand peshmerga and more than 5000 wounded in this war with these terrorits, 4000 of our woman and girls were taken as slaves, thousands of others massacred, you're making a lot of Kurds angry by not using the correct terms!

The main question: is Turkey going to help Kurds Yes or NO, is Turkey a friend or an enemy, it is important, so that Kurds can know who is their friend and who is not
