According to local sources from Hasakah, a senior commander of the Islamic State terrorist group, who had come from the US, was killed by unknown assailants in northeastern Syria.
A senior commander of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, Abu Fariq al-Ameriki, who had come to Syria from the US, was killed by unknown assailants in the southern part of Hasakah, the Fars news agency reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed local sources. Reportedly, the body of the killed commander was found by other members of the terrorist group at a bazaar in Merkedeh town.
As the news agency’s sources noted, recently, a number of fighters and commanders of the IS were killed by unknown assailants or members of the terrorist group itself due to accusations of escape from the battlefields in Merkedeh.
After the killing of al-Ameriki, the terrorist group has put its forces on red alert in the region.
On Sunday, one of the senior commanders of the IS, Abu Mohammad, was executed by other members of the terrorist group, as he attempted to flee from Merkedeh town, located in the countryside of Hasakah in northern Syria, with $150,000 of the group’s cash. The IS killed Mohammad, accusing him of spying for the coalition’s forces.
