ISIS propaganda agency co-founder killed in Syria airstrike 

One of the founders of ISIS propaganda agency was killed in his hometown during a coalition airstrike in eastern Syria, Fox News reported.

Rayan Mash’al and his daughter were in their home Wednesday in the city of Al-Mayadin, part of Deir ez-Zor province, when coalition forces launched a bombing attack, according to the Facebook post Wednesday by Mash’al’s brother, Hozaifa Abo Alyaman, the Middle East Media Research Institute reported.

“I break the news to you of the death of my older brother Bara’ Kadek, known as Rayan Mash’al, together with his daughter Lian, as a result of a coalition forces aerial bombing of his home in the region of Al-Mayadin in Deir ez-Zor,” the post said.

Mash’al was one of the founders of the Halab news agency at the beginning of the rebellion in Syria before going on to co-found ISIS’ media division, known as the A’maq news agency, in 2013, according to an announcement of his death by the pro-ISIS Al-Haq media outlet.
