New York [U.S.A.], August 4 (ANI): The U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria has said it killed 12 members of the terror group operating inside Syria in recent days, CNN reports. The strikes, which occurred over the last few months, targetted several members of ISIS, including Lavdrim Muhaxheri, an ethnic Albanian from Kosovo who was responsible for plotting to bomb a 2016 soccer match between Israel and Albania in the Albanian city of Elbasan, according to a press release from the coalition. The other ISIS members killed included figures responsible for encouraging lone wolf attacks around the world and recruiters who facilitated the movement of foreign fighters to Syria. The strikes mainly took place in Abu Kamal and Mayadin, Syria, along the middle Euphrates River valley, where many ISIS leaders and fighters have moved since military operations to liberate the group's capital in Raqqa began.
