JORDAN, Jordan – The death toll from Sunday’s air strike on the al-Nusrah Front, an Islamic State affiliate, mounted to at least 40 fighters killed, according to an air-force statement late on Saturday.

The statement carried a picture of a dead man.

U.S. special operations forces killed al-Nusrah’s deputy, who they named as the group’s acting military commander, Colonel Muhammad al-Baghoul, the statement said.

Baghoul was the head of an Islamic State-affiliated battalion, the statement said.

“We are deeply saddened by news of the death of Mohammad al-Nusrah, one of the most senior Islamic State military commanders, on Friday,” a senior U.S. commander said during a press conference in Jordan on Saturday, using a common acronym for Islamic State. “We remain committed to removing him from power.”

Jordanian and U.S. officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the operation was classified and the identity of the U.S.-led coalition was not publicly known.

Jordanian forces captured the Islamic State’s military chief, Abu Muhammad al-Jazrawi, from Al-Nusrah about an hour’s drive from the border with Syria on Saturday. Al-Jazrawi and another senior leader, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, were killed in a U.S. air strike on the al-Nusrah base in eastern Syria on Friday, state television said on Saturday.

A report released Saturday by Jordan’s state-run news agency JTA identified Jazrawi’s deputy, Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, as being in Al-Nusrah.

In his statement released Saturday, al-Adnani called for Jordan to “take revenge on the people who supported and supported terrorist forces” in the fighting against the Islamic State카지노커뮤니티 militants, according to the statement issued by the state-run news agency.

Jordan and Turkey, two neighbors of Syria, have been fighting against a series of Syrian Kurdish militants from the Islamic State group who have advanced into their areas of control and are said to be using Turkey as a buffer zone.

Jordan said Friday it will deploy its special operations forces to the Syrian border to help Syrian and Kurdish forces, while a U.S. official said the United States would send U.S. air power to provide assis넷마블 포커tance.
