WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A coalition airstrike carried out in Syria’s city of Raqqa on December 4, has killed three Daesh leaders who facilitated external attacks and were involved in the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris, US Department of Defense spokesperson Peter Cook announced on Tuesday.
"The three were working together to plot and facilitate attacks against Western targets at the time of the strike," Cook stated.
In addition, the Daesh operatives participated in recruitment of foreign fighters, according to the release.
At present, the US-led coalition against DAesh is backing the Syrian Democratic Forces offensive to isolate and liberate Raqqa from Daesh.
Daesh is outlawed in the United States, Russia and in numerous other countries around the world.
