ISIS 'rocket expert' responsible for death of US Marine is killed in airstrike

Anti-ISIS coalition airstrikes on Sun killed a top militant who was responsible for the death of a U. S. Marine in northern Iraq latest month, a military spokesman said Sunday.

Staff Sgt. Louis Cardin, twenty-seven, was killed and eight other Marines were wounded when their detachment came below rocket fire on March nineteen. Coalition Spokesman Col. Steve Warren said ISIS fighter Jasim Khadijah was a “rocket expert” who “controlled these attacks,” according to Reuters.

“Jasim Khadijah was an ISIS member and former Iraqi officer believed directly connected to the recent rocket attack that killed SSG Cardin and wounded eight other U. S. Marines,” Warren said.

Warren said the drone strike also killed five other ISIS fighters and destroyed two vehicles belonging to the Islamist group.

Cardin was the second American combat death in Iraq since the start of the campaign to fight ISIS in two thousand-fourteenth, according to Reuters.

“The loss of a Marine is sad, but I thought about it: He was leading his Marines in combat,” Gen. Robert Neller said at a Marine Corps Organization dinner on March twenty-four, according to Military. com. “They were in indirect fire and he made sure everybody got in the bunker, and he just didn’t create it in time. Is that sad? That’s sad. But if you’re going to go, you wish to go in the fight.”
