ISIS dealt 2 major blows in past month

US-led forces have killed 10 Islamic State leaders in airstrikes, including individuals linked to the Paris attacks, a US spokesman said, dealing a double blow to the militant group after Iraqi forces ousted it from the city of Ramadi.


Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi planted the national flag in Ramadi after the army retook the city center from Islamic State, a victory that could help vindicate his strategy for rebuilding the military after stunning defeats.


“Over the past month, we’ve killed 10 ISIL leadership figures with targeted airstrikes, including several external attack planners, some of whom are linked to the Paris attacks,” said US Army Col. Steve Warren, a spokesman for the US-led campaign against the Islamist group also known by the acronym ISIL or ISIS.
