A coalition airstrike in Iraq killed two ISIS senior military commanders last week, including a man that the United States says oversaw the terror group’s 2014 offensive to capture the Iraqi city of Mosul, the Pentagon said Friday.

The June 25 airstrike near Mosul killed ISIS’ deputy minister of war, Basim Muhammad Ahmad Sultan al-Bajari, and Hatim Talib al-Hamduni, a military commander in the area, Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said.

Bajari oversaw ISIS’ efforts to capture Mosul in June 2014, Cook said.
