US-led Coalition Airstrikes Kill 3 ISIS Drone Experts In Syria

The US military claims it has killed three men who played key roles in developing, building and modifying ISIS drones, the Associated Press reports.

US Army Col. Ryan Dillon, the spokesman for the counter-ISIS coalition, said Abu Muadh al-Tunisi was killed on September 12 and Sajid Farooq Babar was killed on September 13 by coalition airstrikes near Mayadin, Syria, in the Middle Euphrates River Valley. Separately, on September 14, two airstrikes in Syria targeted ISIS drone developer Abu Salman near Mayadin and destroyed his research lab in Ashara, Syria.

According to Voa News, Dillon said the two ISIS fighters “were responsible for manufacturing and modifying commercially produced drones.” The fatal strikes against three drone experts degraded ISIS’s ability “to modify and employ drone platforms as reconnaissance and direct-fire weapons on the battlefield,” said Dillon.

In the period between September 24 and September 28, US-led coalition military forces conducted 300 strikes ISIS terrorists in Syria and Iraq, according to strike reports released by Operation Inherent Resolve’s website.

In Syria, Combined Joined Strike Force engaged ISIS near Al Shadaddi, Raqqah,  Abu Kamal and Dayr Az Zawr. In Iraq, the Coalition forces have engaged ISIS forces near Al Qaim, Qayyarah, Haditha, Huwijah, Rawah, Baghdad, Bayji, Fallujah, Ramadi, and Tal Afar. A number of ISIS headquarters, heavy weaponry, supply routes, ISIS tactical units were destroyed.

        Not even funny. “We’re so smart, Colonel. We teach dumb jihadist to modify china made drones. Now Goyim will think that this is China training, funding and arming ISIS. They will never figure out that this was us (Israel/US/US) because we are so smart!”(c)

        • Graeme Rymill

          so ISIS needed CIA funding to buy $500 a piece Chinese built drones? Who would have guessed? I suppose ISIS had spent all the money they found in Mosul’s banks.

          You are long on ridicule…. but as usual extremely short on facts.

  • agcw86

    ISIS-Israeli Secret Intelligence Services-What do you think is really going on? The US is playing tricks and the Russians are getting tired of it.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    USA flieds are only monitoring Russian coalition movements and advances. Then their quickly launches distraction attack in Hama or Idlib.

  • cortisol

    US air strikes always kill some kind of “experts”. No Third Reich experts were important to the end of the war. “Experts” cannot win wars or contribute in that late stage.

    What’s important is killing their manpower and arms, NOT supplying it to them!
