A U.S.-led coalition drone strike Monday in northeastern Syria killed an Islamic State group militant, a Kurdish-Syrian security official said.
Speaking on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, the official told The Associated Press that the strike targeted the IS member driving a motorcycle in the village of Hamam al-Turkman. The village is controlled by Turkish-backed Syrian opposition forces near Tel Abyad. No other casualties were reported.
Photos from local media surfaced on social media showing what is reportedly the remains of the militant’s body next to the destroyed motorcycle.
U.S. Central Command did not immediately issue a statement on the drone attack and did not immediately respond to an inquiry by The Associated Press on the matter.
