Carter says 3 key Islamic State militants killed in Syria

"The three were working together to plot and facilitate attacks against Western targets at the time of the strike", Cook said. Those operations are created to prepare Raqqa for an eventual assault to remove the Islamic State group.

The Pentagon named two of the militants as Salah Gourmat and Sammy Djedou and said both men were involved with facilitating the 2015 machinegun and suicide bomb attacks on the Bataclan music hall, Paris bars and restaurants, and the Stade de France football stadium.

The Defense Department said the coalition has killed five top Islamic State militants who attempted to attack foreign targets since mid-November.

They were riding together in a vehicle at the time of the drone strike, Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis said. Hamman was convicted of absentia in Belgium after a failed 2015 attack. He was involved in financing the Paris attack and had worked to inspire lone wolf attacks. "And, he was a known associate... of ISIL external operations leader Abu Muhammad al-Adnani".

All three were part of a network led by Boubaker Al-Hakim, an ISIS leader who was linked the January 2015 attack on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

He had been arrested with two other men in May 2012 at an airport near Saint-Etienne in central France carrying a revolver, night-vision goggles, camouflage clothing and tactical vests.

Gourmat and another of the men arrested claimed they were going on a humanitarian trip.

Coalition airstrikes in Iraq and Syria have been taking out an increasing number of Islamic State leaders in recent months, aided by improved intelligence gathering from forces on the ground and from troves of information collected as IS has been driven out of neighborhoods.
