US strike in Syria kills senior ISIS official

The U.S. killed a senior ISIS official during a strike in Syria on Sunday, according to the military.

U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) said the airstrike killed Usamah Jamal Muhammad Ibrahim al-Janabi.

“His death will disrupt ISIS’s ability to resource and conduct terror attacks,” CENTCOM said in a statement on the social platform X. “CENTCOM, alongside allies and partners in the region, will continue to execute operations to degrade ISIS operational capabilities and ensure its enduring defeat.”

CENTCOM said there was no indication that any civilians were harmed in the strike.

The U.S. has continued to target leaders of ISIS, the extremist Islamist terrorist group that has recently resurged and bombed Iran and Russia this year, killing dozens of people.

At the end of May, U.S. African Command said an airstrike in Somalia targeted ISIS militants, killing at least three fighters.
