The deputy leader of ISIS and other high-ranking officials have been killed by an airstrike in the Iraqi region of al-Qaim, BREITBART reports.
Ayad al-Jumaili was understood to be second-in-command to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and head of the group’s internal security unit, which has carried out rapes, beatings, and public executions.
