Washington D.C., Feb. 19 (ANI): The United States on Friday attacked an Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) camp on Friday where Noureddine Chouchane, a senior operative in the terrorist group, was believed to be present.
According to CNN, Chouchane is believed to have played an instrumental role in two terror attacks in Tunisia last year in which ISIS claimed responsibility for both massacres.
Around 10 people were killed and around 12 injured in the airstrike and it was not immediately clear if Chouchane was among those killed or wounded.
The U.S. military has launched a flurry of airstrikes against ISIS targets over the past months, mostly in Iraq and Syria, where the extremist group has established its biggest foothold in Raqqa. (ANI)
