US air strikes kill at least three top ISIS leaders

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey told The Wall Street Journal that three top ISIS leaders were killed in recent weeks. One was Haji Mutazz, a deputy to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the terror group. “It is disruptive to their planning and command and control,” Gen. Dempsey said. “These are high-value targets, senior leadership.”
