Syria Dies in a US attack an Islamic State leader who planned to attack Europe

The US Army announced on Tuesday the death of a "senior leader" of the Islamic State (IS), identified as Khalid Ayyd Ahmad al Jabouri, who according to the United States was planning attacks in Europe.

The Central Command of the United States (CETCOM) specified in a statement that the death of the man who was responsible for the hierarchical structure of the jihadist organization and for planning attacks by the group in Europe occurred this Monday in a "unilateral" US incursion into Syria. .

According to General Michael Kurill, who is in charge of CENTCOM in the area, the "Islamic State still poses a danger to the region" and beyond.

Although weakened, the IS is still capable of carrying out operations in the region, added Kurrill, who specified that the jihadist group also intends to operate outside the Middle East as well.

The death of Al Jabouri, in an operation in which there were no civilian casualties, will interrupt the organization's ability to carry out external attacks, adds the CETCOM note.
