An American drone strike killed the leader of the Islamic State in Syria on Tuesday, U.S. Central Command announced.

The strike in northwest Syria killed Maher al-Agal, the leader of the terrorist group’s Syria branch and a senior official within the broader Islamic State, U.S. officials said. The strike also “seriously injured” a second senior ISIS official.

“This strike reaffirms CENTCOM’s steadfast commitment to the region and the enduring defeat of ISIS,” Col. Joe Buccino, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command, said in a statement. “The removal of these ISIS leaders will disrupt the terrorist organization’s ability to further plot and carry out global attacks.”

The strike comes as President Joe Biden prepares to depart Tuesday night for his first trip to the Middle East as president. Biden’s trip to Israel and Saudi Arabia will include a meeting with the Israeli prime minister and president, a virtual summit with leaders from Israel, India, and the United Arab Emirates, a meeting with Saudi leadership, and a summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council that will also include Egypt, Iraq, and Jordan, known as the GCC+3.

“We are clear-eyed that the region remains full of challenges and threats from Iran, from terrorist groups that still operate in a number of countries; challenges in the ongoing conflict in Syria; challenges to human rights and human freedom,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said Monday at a briefing. “This is why the president believes there is no substitute for the power of face-to-face diplomacy.”

When American forces withdrew from Afghanistan last year, lawmakers worried that “over-the-horizon” operations would be insufficient to maintain the military’s mission to target terrorists in the Middle East who threaten America.

But the Defense Department has killed multiple high-profile ISIS terrorists this year, including Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi, the leader of the Islamic State, whom U.S. officials said killed himself and members of his family during an American special operations raid in February. More recently, American troops conducted a raid last month to capture a bomb maker for the terrorist group.

American counterterrorism operations also extend beyond the Islamic State. Last month, U.S. Central Command conducted a strike against Abu Hamzah al Yemeni, a senior leader of Hurras al-Din, an Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group.

  1. Did Syria ask for it? Of course not. Get out of Syria You are Illegally there and for MR Dummy so-called President you belong to the dummy museum. So get yourself placed there.

  2. Hello old friends.. I’m back.. and I think VT is much smarter than to believe stories like this! US is a partner of ISIS and virtually any other terrorist (Israel) in ME. Please let Russia and Iran do their job.

  3. I will not go into the merits that the other comments are enough.

    I have to admit that I’m a bit envious but I say, with these numbers doesn’t he deserve the Pulitzer?

  4. Lol, how can a media be this funny?
    I just thought VT believes ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) is US’s and Israel’s creature according to Edward Snowden…….. so how possibly the USA might have killed its own agent?
    As long as the Yankees are in Syria, ISIS will never be destroyed there…

  5. Do we keep killing the same guy over and over or are we actually killing one then his replacement then his…

    • Stabbing their Freddy Kruger doll with a rubber knife.
      So proud of the magnitude of their lies and absolutely shameless with their psychopathic chutzpah.

  6. Kills leader of ISIS in Syria…. says who, CNN? FOX? The White House? Looks like they are trying to bring Biden’s rating up from 33%. Biden would be like: “A US drone strike has killed a leader of Isis in Syria. End of quote. Thank the crowd. Answer one question from Kaitlan Collins.”

    One Norwegian did his homework a couple of years ago, either on Halloween, 2019, or on Nov. 1 he released his findings.

    The leader of ISIS Abu Bakr Baghdadi (Actually named Simon Elliot, an Israeli Mossad operative) was allegedly killed in Barisha Syria by the Trump Admin on Oct. 26 or 27. They give two dates because like 9-11 the media couldn’t give the same account.

    However, the Norwegian guy was good with satellite maps, and he went back to the compound in Barisha over a year previous, and guess what, it had already been destroyed with time-stamped photo evidence he released in 2018. It was destroyed months, if not several years before Abu Bakr was allegedly killed. That Norwegian’s evidence was pulled off internet literally minutes later.

    So, what happened to the real Simon Elliot? What happened to the real Jeffrey Epstein? Does anybody check that Zionist retirement area called Miami?
