I do not believe this news at all. The narrative is completely controlled from start to finish- Alleged mastermind claimed killed in undisclosed location and the western backed ‘first responders‘ claim they witnessed the strike. Taking the injured man to be treated but said man succumbed to his injuries.
From start to finish this narrative cannot be verified by any other means or sources. It’s completely bogus in my opinion.
The US military says a senior leader of the jihadist group Islamic State (IS) who was responsible for planning attacks in Europe has been killed in a strike in Syria.
Khalid Aydd Ahmad al-Jabouri died in an undisclosed location on Monday, according to US Central Command.
No civilians were said to have been killed or injured in the attack.
First responders said a man was killed in a drone strike on Monday in opposition-held north-western Syria.
The White Helmets organisation tweeted that an unidentified drone fired a missile at the man on the outskirts of the town of Kili, in Idlib province.
“Our teams responded and took the injured person to Bab Al-Hawa Hospital, where he died,” it added.
Pro-opposition Step News cited local sources as identifying the man as Khalid Abdullah al-Khulaif and saying that he was likely to have been a senior jihadist from the eastern province of Deir al-Zour.
IS has not commented on the US announcement nor have its online supporters discussed it. Khalid al-Jabouri had not been publicly identified in the group’s propaganda.
That’s all so convenient..
Considering the news I covered earlier today..
“The diplomatic push, opposed by the US…..”
