Coalition forces capture senior Daesh leader

CJTF-OIR Public Affairs

Coalition forces conducted a counterterrorism operation to capture a senior Daesh leader in northern Syria June 16. The captured individual is an experienced bomb maker and operational facilitator who became one of the top leaders of Daesh's Syrian branch.

The mission was meticulously planned to minimize the risk of collateral damage or civilian harm. The operation was successful; no civilians were harmed nor were there injuries to Coalition forces or damage to Coalition aircraft or assets.

Coalition forces will continue to work with our partners, the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Iraqi Security Forces, including the Peshmerga, to hunt the remnants of Daesh wherever they hide to ensure Daesh's enduring defeat.
