(IraqiNews.com) Nineveh – The Australian government announced on Thursday the killing of an Australian leader in the so-called ISIS by a U.S air strike in Iraq.

The Australian Attorney General George Brandis said in a press statement followed by IraqiNews.com, “Neil Prakash was the country’s most prominent ISIS recruiter and its highest value target, and he had been linked to several plans to attack his homeland and called for lone-wolf strikes against the United States,” pointing out that, “Prakash was killed on April 29 in Mosul, Iraq by a U.S. airstrike.”

Brandis added, “The ISIS recruiter also appeared in propaganda videos in English, in which he told his personal story, exhorted his countryman to “rise up” and invited them to join the self-proclaimed Islamic State’s caliphate in Iraq and Syria.”
