Haji Imam, a senior leader of the Islamic State group, has been killed by U.S. coalition forces, defense officials told NBC Friday. The leader’s death could mark a significant blow to the extremist group, also known as ISIS, as it continues to face military defeats in Iraq and Syria. Imam, the nom de guerre for Abd ar-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli, was a deputy commander for the group and is believed to have served as second in command. Last year, Secretary of State John Kerry authorized a $7 million reward for information on his whereabouts. The terrorist was reportedly killed during daylight hours in a U.S. special operations raid in Syria that was aimed at securing his arrest. Three others were reported dead. The news was first announced by the Daily Beast Friday, which stated that Defense Secretary Ash Carter was expected to soon confirm the operation. Article Org: ibitimes.com
