Iraq claims senior ISIS leaders killed in air strike

London: The Iraqi military have claimed to have killed senior commanders of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in an air strike operation by their military.

ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, however, was not among the victims in the air strike.

According to The Guardian, in a statement by the country’s war media cell, the air strike targeted Baghdadi’s convoy as it was travelling to Karabla, a town near Iraq-Syrian border.

According to reports, the strike was conducted with coordination among Iraq’s interior ministry intelligence services and the joint operation command centre. (ANI)
