ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — The Iraqi Cabinet claimed Sunday that 13 Islamic State leaders were killed by Iraqi airstrikes in western areas of the embattled Anbar province Saturday.
The warplanes carried out the airstrikes based on intelligence and destroyed an ISIS “shelter” in Qaim on the Syrian border, according to the Cabinet in a statement.
“The shelter was being used to harbor ISIS suicide bombers and was where 13 ISIS leaders were killed in the bombings, including Abu Ali Salmani, head of the suicide bomber shelter, and Muntasar Hardani, charged with preparing rockets,” the Cabinet statement said.
The other leaders claimed among the ISIS dead were identified as Sabah Fallah, Abu Turab al-Muhajir from East Asia, Abu Jarah al-Iraqi and Abu Ibrahim al-Shami, a Syrian national.
