– LIBYAN ISIS LEADER, AL-ZUBAYDI, KILLED

ZubaydiAn F-15 fighter jet strike killed, on Saturday 11/14/2015, the head of I.S.I.S in Libya, the Pentagon said  in another high-profile U.S. hit following the targeting of the most-wanted “Jihadi John.”

Washington has orchestrated an air campaign going after the ISIS group and senior figures in Syria and Iraq, but this is the first U.S. strike against an ISIS leader in Libya.

Abu Nabil, also known as Wissam Najm Abd Zayd al-Zubaydi, an Iraqi national and a former Al Qaeda operative,  was the senior ISIS leader in Libya and may also have been the spokesman in a grisly video showing the execution of Coptic Christians, Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said in a statement.  “While not the first U.S. strike against terrorists in Libya, this is the first U.S. strike against an ISIL leader in Libya and it demonstrates we will go after ISIL leaders wherever they operate.” he said.
