"We are systematically eliminating ISIL's cabinet," U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said during a Pentagon press briefing.
The U.S. says it has killed Abd al-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli, a senior religious leader and a man some consider ISIS' second in command.
Al-Qaduli was originally part of Al-Qaeda and deputy to the leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Zarqawi was killed in a U.S. airstrike in 2006.
