The Pentagon has confirmed that one of ISIS’s top commanders in Libya was killed in a U.S. airstrike last month. The operation to kill Iraqi national Abu Nabil in the eastern port city of Darnah was conceived before terrorists went on a rampage in the French capital, Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said. It is believed the commander had previously been governor of Salah-ad-din province in Iraq before he was dispatched to ISIS’s franchise in Libya.
