According to reports, Othman Al Nazih was killed in an airstrike in the strategic city on Thursday.
Social media pages belonging to the Takfiri group also verified the death of the Takfiri militant in the Syrian border city.

Reports also said over 1,000 people have been killed in the battle for the town, most of them terrorists.
The ISIL terrorists control some parts of Iraq and Syria. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control. They have terrorized and killed people of all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.
