IS Rocket Expert Killed in Drone Strike 

BAGHDAD (Reuters) -

Jasim Khadijah, an Islamic State terrorist believed to be responsible for a deadly attack on U.S. troops in northern Iraq, has been killed in a drone strike, a spokesman for the anti-IS coalition said in Baghdad on Sunday.

“He was a rocket expert, he was controlling these attacks,” spokesman U.S. Army Colonel Steve Warren, told reporters, referring to the shelling last month of a base used by U.S. troops in northern Iraq in which a U.S. Marine was killed and several others were wounded.

It was the second death of a U.S. service member in combat since the United States first struck the terror group in 2014.
