“At least 7 field commanders of various levels have been killed, including Abu Islam Al-Kazaki, a native of Kazakhstan who coordinated the actions of ISIS assault units in the Euphrates valley, in addition to about 40 militants from the North Caucasus, as well as a terrorist sniper group,” Konashenkov added.
