ISIS rocket expert Khadijah killed in drone strike

Jasim Khadijah, an ISIS terrorist believed to be responsible for a deadly attack by terrorists on U.S. troops in northern Iraq, has been killed in a drone strike, a spokesman of the anti-ISIS coalition said in Baghdad on Sunday.

“He was a rocket expert, he was controlling these attacks,” the spokesman, U.S. Army Colonel Steve Warren, told reporters, referring to the shelling last month of a base used by U.S. troops in northern Iraq in which a U.S. Marine was killed and several others were wounded.

It was the second death of a U.S. service member in combat since the United States first struck the terror group in 2014.
