A coalition air strike near the Daesh bastion of Mosul in Iraq has killed two of the group's senior military leaders, the Pentagon said Friday.
"Coalition forces conducted an air strike against two ISIL senior military commanders on June 25 near Mosul, Iraq, resulting in their deaths," Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said in a statement, using a different acronym for the Daesh terrorist group.
"The precision strike killed Basim Muhammad Ahmad Sultan al-Bajari, ISIL's deputy minister of war, and Hatim Talib al-Hamduni, an ISIL military commander in Mosul."
The other Daesh member killed in the strike was Hatim Talib al-Hamduni, a military commander in Mosul, Cook added.
In June, Iraq's military claimed victory in a U.S.-backed offensive against Daesh forces in Falluja and set its sights on an offensive against the militants who hold Mosul, Iraq's second largest city.
