Supporters of ISIS took to twitter to confirm that Maher Meshaal, also known as Abhu Hajar al-Hadrami, a Saudi national was killed in airstrikes in the city of Al Hasaka in Syria's southern region.
Such was his popularity that ISIS featured many of his songs and voice for gruesome propaganda and execution videos.
Meshaal is the author of jihadi hymns such as "Saleel al-Sawarem" and "Halomoo Halomoo O' lions of war," which are regularly played as background music in combat and execution videos released by ISIS.
Although the recent bombing campaign has injured militants, ISIS is still in control of southern parts of the city, an anti-ISIS activist in Hasakah told local reporters.
