A U.S. coalition jet killed a senior leader who was one of the first terrorists to join ISIS in an attack in Syria last month, the Defense Department said Thursday.
Tariq Bin-al-Tahar Bin al Falih al-Awni al-Harzi, a top fundraiser for the radical Islamist group, was killed June 16 in an airstrike over Shaddadi, said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a spokesman for U.S. Northern Command.
His brother, Ali bin Tahar al-‘Awni al-Harzi — described as a “person of interest” in the September 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya — was killed in Mosul, Iraq, the day before, Davis said.
