Washington, May 10 (IBNS) The Pentagon on Monday said Abu Wahib, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s military emir for Iraq’s Anbar province, has been killed during a U.S.-led coalition airstrike May 6.

Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook  said Wahib is a former member of al-Qaida in Iraq and has been seen in ISIL execution videos.

The strike also killed three other ISIL jihadists, Cook said.

“Abu Wahib's death is another blow to ISIL's leadership that will further degrade its ability to operate, especially in Anbar province,” he said in a statement issued by the Pentagon.
