ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — The chief of media for ISIS, who was also a part of the group’s security department, was killed in Syria this week, Kurdish security officials have announced.

The Kurdistan Region Security Council (KRSC) announced on Thursday that its Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) confirmed that Khalid Hamza al-Maamouri was killed in a coalition airstrike in Syria on April 16.

Maamouri, also known as Abu Ali al-Janoubi, according to the KRSC, was emir of administration for a brigade attached to ISIS’s General Security Department (Diwan).

The KRSC did not specify which of the Coalition's 21 strikes in Syria on April 16 killed Maamouri.

Close to the Iraqi border near Abu Kamal a strike "destroyed an ISIS vehicle," according to the Coalition.

Also on April 16, the Coalition stated it struck “tactical units” near Raqqa, Deir ez-Zur, and Tabqa.

The KRSC announced on it had confirmed the killing of Ammar Hassan Mohamad Hassan and nine others on April 17 on the Riyaz-Hawija road in Iraq near Kirkuk.

Hassan, was also known as Abu Nabil, and was described as an ISIS security chief by the KRSC.
Kurdish security and intelligence officials have coordinated closely with the international coalition to defeat ISIS.
 
“We take every opportunity that we can to remove ISIS leadership figures from the battlefield,” Coalition spokesperson Col. John Dorrian said in February.
 
Top ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has a $25 million bounty on his head.
