Video shows the body of slain ISIS commander Ahmed al-Ruwaysi, also known as Abu Zakariya al-Tunisi, who was killed in Libya during clashes with forces from the Islamist Libya Dawn coalition near Sirte.
The identity of the dead body was confirmed by Ismail Shukri, a spokesperson for Libya Dawn.
An obituary published by ISIS mentioned that Ruwaysi had planned and carried out the assassinations of two prominent Tunisian leftist activists, Mohammed Brahmi and Chokri Belaid.
Responding to an incursion by Islamic State fighters on the southern outskirts of Kirkuk on Jan. 29-30, Saturday Peshmerga PUK fighters reacted by going on the offensive, launching an attack on the ISIS-held village of Mula Abdulla just five kilometers south of Maktab Khaled. Supported by anti-ISIS coalition airstrikes from A-10s and other aircraft, approximately 600 Peshmerga fighters used tanks, RPGs, and small arms to assault what they estimated to be 250 ISIS fighters holed up in the village. ISIS responded with mortars and small arms, and as of dusk, the battle for Mula Abdulla was still at a standstill. However, ISIS return fire greatly diminished after several passes by an A-10, which struck their mortar positions to the cheers of Peshmerga fighters taking cover behind a berm just 30 feet away. An improvised explosive device struck at least one Peshmerga vehicle; the Kurds warned that many of the devices in the immediate area—held by ISIS just days before—could pose a threat to Kurdish operations. Peshmerga authorities conducted controlled detonations of some of the devices they found, as well as buried with a bulldozer the corpses of ISIS fighters killed the day before.
