From Voice of America:

“The Pentagon said Tuesday a coalition airstrike killed three key Islamic State leaders in Syria, including two militants who were involved in last year’s terrorist attacks in Paris.

“The three were working together to plot and facilitate attacks against Western targets at the time of the strike,” said Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook.

Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said all three plotters were targeted while riding in a vehicle in Raqqa, Islamic State’s de facto capital in Syria, on December 4.

Two of the militants, Salah Gourmat and Sammy Djedou, were involved in plotting last year’s Paris attacks that killed 130 people, according to Pentagon officials.”
