    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – A senior leader of Daesh, Salman Abu Shabib al-Jebouri, died in a joint US-Kurdish counterterrorism operation conducted on Monday south of the Iraqi city of Mosul, Kurdistan Region Security Council said in a Twitter message.

    ​Al-Jebouri, also known as Abu Saif, was a member of Daesh’ military council responsible for terrorist activities in South Mosul and Makhmour, according to the council.
