BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – The Iraqi Air Force carried out a strategic bombing, Saturday, that targeted the Islamic State’s (ISIS) command meeting in Syria.

According to the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, their F-16 bombers targeted an Islamic State central command meeting that was being held in eastern Syria this weekend.

The F-16 bombers annihilated the entire building where the meeting was held, killing more than 45 Islamic State combatants and their leaders.

Among the Islamic State terrorists that were killed this weekend was the cousin of the group’s infamous leader and founder Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

This targeted bombing is another major blow to the terrorist group this week, as their first symbolic loss took place at Tal Safouk, which is a border-crossing that was lost to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Tal Safouk was where the leaders of the Islamic State first announced the start of their so-called ‘caliphate’ in both Iraq and Syria.
