Founder of IS news agency, Amaq, killed in US-led airstrike on Syria

 

The founder of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) news agency Amaq was killed in a U.S.-led coalition airstrike in eastern Syria, according to his brother and activists.

ISIS has not confirmed the death of Rayan Meshaal but his brother said in a Facebook post on Wednesday that he had achieved “martyrdom” in the city of al-Mayadin in the eastern Syrian province of Deir Ezzor.

“I’m pleased to announce the martyrdom of my older brother Baraa Kadek, known as Rayan Meshaal…in an air strike by the coalition,” Hozaifa’s post read, according to Reuters.
