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 on September 7 near Raqa, the Syrian city that is the de facto capital of the Islamic State jihadist group. “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 group spokesman killed on August 30.
