ERBIL — The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has announced the killing of an Islamic State (IS) official in central of Raqqa, in northeast of Syria.
The operation was carried on last Tuesday by the SDF’s special units in cooperation with US-led Coalition forces, “targeting the terrorist Ibrahim Al-Ali aka Abu Mujahid, the ISIS official of the Eastern region,” the SDF Media Center said in a statement.
“Supported by air surveillance from the International Coalition Forces, our forces successfully stormed the building where the terrorist was hiding. A clash erupted as he adamantly declined to heed the call for safe surrender, resulting in his neutralization.”
According to the statement, the operation also led to the seizure of various weapons and military equipment, including AK-47 rifle /1/, AK-47 magazines /7/, Ak-47 ammunition, Smartphones /4/, Laptop /1, Wi-Fi Reuter, and Personal IDs.
“Our dedicated forces, in close partnership with the International Coalition, will persistently pursue ISIS officials across different regions of NE Syria,” the SDF reaffirmed.
