Cross off another ISIS leader at the hands of the United States of America. The latest to be killed by the U.S. military is Abd ar-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli, who happens to be second in command of the extremist group, and was killed during an operation targeting ISIS positions in Syria.
From USA Today:
Abd ar-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli, a senior religious leader for the terrorist group, was killed in an operation in Syria, said the official who was not authorized to speak publicly about the attack.He went by the alias Haji Imam. The U.S. had a $7 million bounty on his head.
Since the attack wasn’t an airstrike, there is a distinct possibility that American troops are behind the death. Just another reason that no matter how confident you think you are in taking on American soldiers, you’ll get domed.
The Pentagon confirmed that we are responsible death in a press conference this morning..
