District of Columbia: A coalition air strike in Syria has killed a senior Islamic State operative considered the group`s information minister, a week after another raid eliminated a top IS strategist, the Pentagon said Friday.

Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said that Wa'il Adil Hasan Salman al-Fayad, also known as "Dr. Wa`il", was killed in a precision strike near the de-facto IS capital of Raqa on September 7.

"Wa'il oversaw ISIL's production of terrorist propaganda videos showing torture and executions," Cook said, describing him as "one of ISIL's most senior leaders" and a close associate of Abu Mohamed al-Adnani, the IS spokesman killed on August 30.
