During a Pentagon press briefing, joined by Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Carter said the coalition is systematically eliminating ISIL’s cabinet, including Haji Imam. Carter Discusses Eliminating ISIL “He was a well-known terrorist within ISIL’s ranks, dating back to its earliest iteration as al-Qaida in Iraq when he worked under [the group’s leader Abu Musab al-] Zarqawi as its liaison for operations with Pakistan,” the secretary said. Hampering ISIL Operations “The removal of this ISIL leader will hamper the organization’s ability … to conduct operations both inside and outside of Iraq and Syria,” he said. Carter said Imam is the second senior ISIL leader the coalition has killed this month. Earlier this month defense officials confirmed the death of ISIL’s so-called minister of war, Abu Omar al-Shishani, known as Omar the Chechen. When the fight against ISIL accelerated a few months ago, the secretary said, the coalition began with storage sites where ISIL holds its cash, and now the leader who oversees all funding for ISIL operations is dead, hurting the terrorist army’s ability to pay fighters and hire recruits.
