As we reported yesterday here on BroBible, 17 airstrikes carried out by the U.S. Military decimated ISIS’ hold on the city of Ramadi, forcing Daesh to retreat with their crippled tails tucked between their cowardly legs. Today the Pentagon followed up that announcement with some fucking awesome news, something we can all be stoked about:
Among the people killed by the U.S. airstrikes carried out on Christmas Eve was ISIS leader Charaffe al Mouadan, a man who had direct ties to the ring leader of the recent Paris attacks. It’s now being reported that before the U.S. took out Charaffe al Mouadan with the Christmas Eve airstrikes he was actively planning another massacre against the West. The airstrikes were followed by elite Iraqi special forces securing the city of Ramadi (pictured above).
An ISIS leader with direct links to the ‘mastermind’ behind the Paris terrorist attacks has been killed in a drone strike in Syria, the Pentagon said Tuesday.
Charaffe al Mouadan was killed in an U.S. airstrike on December 24, Baghdad-based US military spokesman Colonel Steve Warren confirmed today.
Frenchman Al Mouadan has been linked to Paris attack ‘ringleader’ Abdelhamid Abaaoud, and was reportedly plotting additional attacks when he was killed.
Abaaoud, 28, was killed in a police raid in north Paris days after the coordinated shootings and bombings in the French capital on November 13.
‘He was a Syrian-based ISIL member with a direct link to Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the Paris attacks cell leader,’ Warren said, adding that he ‘was actively planning additional attacks against the West.’
So good fucking riddance to this p.o.s., may he be missed by nobody and his name never be spoken again after today. This news is something we can all be encouraged by as the fight to extinguish Daesh rages on, and U.S. Military Forces continue to cripple Daesh with every passing day…
Here’s what the DailyMail has to add about the United States Military’s next move in the fight against ISIS:
Iraqi forces backed by US-led coalition air strikes had punched into the city centre on Tuesday,with the fighting over the final days of the battle concentrated around the former government complex.
ISIS fighters had been defending defended with snipers, suicide car bomb attacks and hundreds of roadside bombs and booby traps.
The advance by the government forces had also been hampered by the possible presence of dozens of families trapped in the combat zone and used by ISIS as human shields.
It was reported on Sunday that all ISIS fighters had left the government complex in the centre of the city.
After Ramadi, the army plans to move to retake the northern city of Mosul, the biggest population centre under ISIS control in Iraq and Syria.
Dislodging the militants from Mosul, which had a pre-war population close to two million, would effectively abolish their state structure in Iraq and deprive them of a major source of funding, which comes partly from oil and partly from fees and taxes on residents.
All of this is encouraging news, it makes me hopeful that we might see the end of this terrorist organization masquerading as a religious group by the time 2016 comes to a close. Either way, I’ll take this good news as 2015 wraps up, after all the shit that happened this year I’ll take any good news I can get.
