Islamic State's second-in-command killed in raid in Syria: NBC

PanARMENIAN.Net - ISIS' second in command was killed during a raid in Syria this month, defense officials told NBC News.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joe Dunford are expected to provide details on the raid that killed Haji Imam at 10:30 a.m. ET Friday, March 25.

Officials told NBC News earlier this month that top ISIS commander Omar al-Shishani — also known by his nickname Omar the Chechen — was believed killed in a U.S. airstrike in Syria.

The deaths are major scores for U.S.-led coalition forces in taking out the biggest names on the U.S.'s terror hit list, NBC says.
