WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US-led coalition forces have conducted an airstrike in the Iraqi city of Mosul, resulting in the deaths of two senior military commanders of Daesh, US Department of Defense spokesman Peter Cook said in a statement.

"The precision strike killed Basim Muhammad Ahmad Sultan al-Bajari, ISIL's [Daesh] deputy minister of war, and Hatim Talib al-Hamduni, an ISIL military commander in Mosul," the statement said on Friday.

Al-Bajari was an experienced terrorist, a former member of al-Qaeda who brought his military skills into the Islamic State, the statement noted. He oversaw the Islamic State’s June 2014 offensive to capture Mosul.

Al-Hamduni was a Daesh military commander in Mosul and the head of military police for the surrounding Ninawa province, the statement added.

The Islamic State, also known as Daesh in Arabic, is a designated terrorist organization that is outlawed in Russia and many other countries.
