The ISIS leader at the top of the U.S. kill list died this week, days after he was wounded in Syria, a U.S. military intelligence official told NBC News.
Abu Muhammad al-Adnani was the terror group’s No. 2 commander, its charismatic director of external operations and main propagandist.
He succumbed to his injuries in Al-Bab, a town 15 miles northeast from Aleppo and 20 miles from the Turkish border, the official said.
Turkish air forces have been operating in the area where al-Adnani was believed to have been wounded, but it’s unclear which military forces killed him.
