Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair General Joseph Dunford held a news conference on combating ISIL.* Secretary Carter confirmed news reports of the death of ISIL’s second-in-command, saying “We are systematically eliminating ISIL’s cabinet. Indeed, the U.S. military killed several key ISIL terrorists this week, including, we believe, Haji Iman.” Haji Iman was an alias of Abd al-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli, who was believed to have become deputy leader after ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was reportedly injured in an airstrike.
