An air strike by a U.S.-led coalition killed a senior Islamic State official in Iraq, a Pentagon spokesman said on Monday.
The strike on May 6 killed Abu Wahib, Islamic State’s chief military official in Anbar province, said Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook. The strike was on a vehicle carrying Abu Wahib, also known as Shakir Wahib, and three other Islamic State members near the town of Rutba, Cook said.
