Omar al-Shishani, a top commander of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, ISIS, Daesh), has been killed in Iraq, a website affiliated with the armed group said.
The Pentagon announced in March that US forces had killed Shishani, saying his death would likely hamper ISIL's operations in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere.
