In Syria, in the southern suburb of Raqqa, the leader of the "Islamic State" terrorist group Ibrahim Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was destroyed. He participated in a meeting of leaders of a terrorist group that discussed the release of militants from Raqqa through the so-called "southern corridor." The leader of the militants had been earlier in Iraqi Mosul, but was able to leave the city after the beginning of the offensive by the Iraqi army.

Russian air strike killed the participants of the military council of ISIS, as well as about 30 field commanders of the middle level and up to 300 militants of their personal protection. The attack on terrorists was inflicted on May 28, 2017, but it was announced only now, after re-checking the data. Washington was informed in advance of the strike.
