A senior Islamic State member and two of his aides were killed south of the Iraqi city of Mosul on Monday in a helicopter raid by US special forces and Kurdish counter-terrorism forces, the Kurdish regional security council said.

A statement identified the leader as Suleiman Abd Shabib al-Jabouri, also known as Abu Saif, and said he was a member of the militant group's war council.

In a separate operation a day earlier, witnesses and Kurdish security sources said troops from a US-led coalition landed a helicopter north of Mosul and seized at least one Islamic State member from a vehicle.
