The post said the strike killed Rayan Meshaal and his daughter in their home in the city of al-Mayadin. Syrian opposition activists had been sharing news of Meshaal’s death on social media, Reuters reports.

From the Facebook post by Mash’al’s brother, Hozaifa Abo Alyaman:

“I break the news to you of the death of my older brother Bara’ Kadek, known as Rayan Mash’al, together with his daughter Lian, as a result of a coalition forces aerial bombing of his home in the region of Al-Mayadin in Deir ez-Zor,” the post said.

Fox News reports that Mash’al was one of the founders of the Halab news agency at the beginning of the rebellion in Syria before going on to co-found ISIS’ media division, known as the A’maq news agency, in 2013, according to an announcement of his death by the pro-ISIS Al-Haq media outlet.

The militant group itself has not reported the death of Mash’al.

It is through social media channels that ISIS often claims responsibility for terror attacks throughout the world. A’maq has become the terror group’s fastest and most reliable source of information, using it to post videos and claims of attacks. It has remained online despite bans from social media platforms.

Islamic State militants control swathes of Syria’s vast eastern deserts and most of Deir al-Zor province bordering Iraq, but they have been on the back foot over the past year.

Last week, the coalition told The Associated Press it had carried out a series of airstrikes on May 25 and 26 targeting the ISIS media infrastructure and “propaganda facilities.”

It said at the time that targeting such facilities “degrades” the group’s abilities and inspiration for foreign attacks.

Al-Mayadin has become a refuge for ISIS leaders as the group has come under increasing attack in Mosul in Iraq and their de facto capital Raqqa. Some Syria watchers said the group’s media operations have moved to Al-Mayadin as the U.S.-led coalition and allied Syrian Kurdish-led forces close in on Raqqa.

God Bless. SourceAFF
