    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — An airstrike carried out by the US-led coalition against Daesh has killed Imad Khaled Afer, terrorists’ military advisor for the Iraqi stronghold Mosul, Kurdistan Region Security Council said in a Twitter message on Tuesday.

    Afer, also known as Abu Sarya, was a close associate of the Daesh’s spokesman, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, and controlled the group’s operations in Mosul, according to the Security Council.

    The targeted airstrike took place near Mosul’s Salam Hospital.

    Daesh controls large areas of Syria and Iraq and is banned in many countries, including the United States and Russia. The group is notorious for its brutality and human rights violations, as well as for recruiting people from all over the world via social networks.
