Syrian activists based in London said one of the commanders of ISIS has survived a air strike launched by the United States (US).
Syrian rights observers said Tarkhan Tayumurazovich Batirashvili, AKA Abu Omar al-Shishani, was seriously injured as a result of the US air strike last week.
According to the Department of Defense, the air strike was targeting Batirashvili, and an initial report suggested he was included in the 12 ISIS members who were killed.
However, Syrian rights group claimed Batirashvili was taken for treatment to a hospital in al-Raqqah, a city declared as the capital of the ISIS caliphate.
Batirashvili, who was hunted by the US in exchange for $5 million, was called to hold some high offices in the ISIS, including as the Minister of War.
The Georgian citizen had reportedly helped the Chechen fighters before joining the Georgian military in 2006 and fighting against Russian forces.
Washington claimed Batirashvili as a global terrorist since September of 2014.
The US air strike, which targeted Batirashvili, was launched near the town of al-Shaddadah, northeastern Syria, last Friday when he was reported to strengthen the ISIS power there.
