The recent drone strike was the latest move in an ongoing effort from the U.S. to stop ISIS, as various parts of Syria and Iraq have seen a resurgence of the terrorist group since the beginning of the year.
President Joe Biden also addressed the U.S drone strike, stating that the killing of Maher al-Agal “takes a key terrorist off the field and significantly degrades the ability of ISIS to plan, resource, and conduct their operations in the region.”
“It sends a powerful message to all terrorists who threaten our homeland and our interests around the world. The United States will be relentless in its efforts to bring you to justice.”
