Iraqi security forces have killed a top Daesh commander, Abu Yaser Al-Issawi, announced the Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi Thursday.

“Our heroic armed forces have eliminated Daesh commander Abu Yaser Al-Issawi as part of an intelligence-led operation,” Kadhimi said on Twitter.

The incident took place exactly one week after the two suicide bombings that rocked Baghdad. Daesh terrorists claimed responsibility for the two terrorist attacks.

The bombing killed more than 30 people and wounded over 100 more.
