The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced on July 12 that its units killed Thabit Sobhi Fahad al-Ahmad, a major financer of ISIS, during a special operation, backed by the US-led coalition, in eastern Deir Ezzor.

“The forces, which carried out the operation, tried to arrest him alive but he did not surrender and opened fire, so they responded in kind. This led to his immediate death,” the US-backed group said in an official press release.

Advanced weapons and several mobile phones were reportedly found in al-Ahmad’s hideout, located in the town of al-Sur.

Al-Ahmad, who is known as “the financial brain of ISIS,” was one of the biggest ISIS financiers, according to the SDF. The terrorist is believed to be responsible for much of the group’s illegal oil trade.

The elimination of al-Ahmad is a major blow for ISIS remnants in northeastern Syria. However, it will not likely have a significant effect on the terrorist group’s activities in the region.
