ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—The Islamic State (ISIS) governor of Mosul was killed along with three other leaders today in a US airstrike, said a Kurdish official in the area.

Ismat Rajab, a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in the Mosul region told Rudaw, “We have 100% information that Radhwan Hamdouni known as Abu Laith was killed today and his burial procession is underway right now.”

Rajab said that three other ISIS leaders, one of them a Saudi national, were also killed in the airstrike in the Mushayrafa area of Mosul.

Fire at them and those who are burying them, and make them a lesson to those who are left!

Excellent news! Go on USA-led coaltion airplanes with your fantastic fight against these barbars! Peshmergas try to surround Mosul and cut of ALL the roads and ways which connect Mosul with other parts of Iraq and try to infiltrate with special forces and shoot every barbar. Eliminate part for part every member of these barbars. USA, Germany and France please deliver your tanks to the KRG: Abrams M1, Leopards or Nexters. If you do not deliver these tanks it will cost the Peshmergas to much soldiers and you do not know the hidden policy of Iran and the Shiites of Iraq!
