US says its forces killed Daesh leader in Syria

The US Central Command (CENTCOM) said in a statement early on Tuesday, that its forces has carried out a military operation that killed a senior Daesh leader in Syria on Monday.
Khalid Aydd Ahmad Al-Jabouri was responsible for planning Daesh attacks into Europe and developed the leadership structure for Daesh, the statement said.
Last week, the Tass news agency said Russia had protested to the American-led coalition against the Daesh group about “provocative actions” by US armed forces in Syria.
No civilians were killed or injured in this strike, CENTCOM said, and added that the group “continues to represent a threat to the region and beyond.”
