US Commandos Take Out ISIS Leader in Hunt for Top Terrorists as Obama Prepares to Leave Office | ABC News

An elite team of American commandos killed a senior leader of ISIS this week, giving President Obama another name to scratch off his list of top terrorists in the final days of his presidency.

Abu Anas al-Iraqi, said to be the finance chief of ISIS, was killed Sunday in an operation in Syria by an intelligence-driven U.S. special operations unit known as the Expeditionary Targeting Force, a counterterrorism official told ABC News.

“He was a top ISIS emir,” the counterterrorism official said, using the Arabic term for “prince” or “leader” that is commonly adopted by jihadis.
