Pentagon: Top ISIS Financier Killed in Airstrike | Military.com

A blacklisted top Islamic State financier was killed June 16 in an airstrike by the U.S.-led, anti-ISIS coalition inside one of the group’s final strongholds along the Euphrates River in eastern Syria, the Pentagon said Friday.

Syrian native Fawaz Muhammad Jubayr al-Rawi was described by U.S. officials as an ISIS finance emir who used his financial business to fund terrorism, including the payment of foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria, in a statement released by the Operation Inherent Resolve coalition. Al-Rawi was killed in an attack targeting him in Abu Kamal, a city near Iraq’s border that has been controlled by the terrorist group since 2014, according to the statement.
