Islamic State finance chief confirmed dead in Iraq airstrike

Dec 11, 2015 - 16:29

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Islamic State’s finance chief has been killed in a US-led coalition airstrike in Iraq, an American military spokesperson claimed on Thursday.

Muwaffaq Mustafa Mohammed al-Karmoush, also known as Abu Salah, was killed in recent weeks, Col. Steve Warren said in a videoconference from Baghdad.

Saleh was one of the most senior and experienced members of the group's financial network, the spokesman said, adding Aby Maryam and Abu Rahman al-Tunisi were also killed in the raid.

The fatalities came in late November in Tal Afar area, according to Warren, who said: "Killing him and his predecessors exhausts the knowledge and talent needed to co-ordinate funding within the IS."
