ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – A senior ISIS member in Kirkuk responsible for many civilian and Peshmerga deaths, was killed in a joint operation between Kurdistan's Counter-Terrorism forces (CTD) and the international coalition, the Kurdistan Region Security Council announced in a statement Sunday afternoon. 

 

In the operation that took place on January 5 in Hawija, Islam Taha Mohamad al-Obaidi, also known by his nom de guerre Dr. Moawiya, was killed.

 

"Al-Obaidi was Chief Emir of ISIL's Health Department (Diwan) in Kirkuk Province and responsible for killing tens of civilians in Kirkuk Province. He took part in the martyrdom of four Peshmerga in January 2015 and played a key part in harming Kurdish Yazidi women in Hawija," reads the statement from the Security Council.
