    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US-led coalition strikes in the Kirkuk province of Iraqi Kurdistan killed a Daesh security chief, Ammar Hassan Mohamad Hassan, and his associates, the Kurdistan Region Security Council announced on Tuesday.

    The US-led coalition of 68 nations started to carry out airstrikes against Daesh in Syria and Iraq in 2014, with the strikes in Syria not being authorized by the government of President Bashar Assad or the UN Security Council.
