Daesh Info Minister Killed In Airstrike
A U.S-led coalition air strike on Sept. 7 killed a Daesh militant group leader who oversaw the militant group’s propaganda.
Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said in a statement that the air strike took place near Raqqa, Syria, and targeted and killed Wa’il Adil Hasan Salman al-Fayad, also known as Dr. Wa’il.
The Pentagon said Wa’il was minister of information and was a close associate of the group’s spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani.
Wa’il was also the leader for plotting and inspiring external terror attacks.
It was reported that Wa’il was targeted by the air strike while he was on a motorcycle outside his house.
On August 30, the Daesh group said Adnani was killed in a U.S air strike in Syria, which was later confirmed by the Pentagon.
