Washington: A coalition air strike in Syria killed three Islamic State leaders involved in plotting foreign attacks, including two men involved in facilitating last year's attacks in Paris, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.

"The three were working together to plot and facilitate attacks against Western targets at the time of the strike," said Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook. He said the three were killed in a December 4 air strike in Raqa, an IS stronghold in Syria.
