An Australian leader and recruiter in the so-called ISIS terror group was killed by an airstrike conducted by US-led coalition in Iraq, the Australian government announced on Thursday.

The Australian Attorney General George Brandis said, “Neil Prakash was the country’s most prominent ISIS recruiter and its highest value target, and he had been linked to several plans to attack his homeland and called for lone-wolf strikes against the United States,” pointing out that, “Prakash was killed on April 29 in Mosul, Iraq by a US airstrike.”

Brandis added, “The ISIS recruiter also appeared in propaganda videos in English, in which he told his personal story, exhorted his countryman to “rise up” and invited them to join the self-proclaimed IS caliphate in Iraq and Syria,” IraqiNews reported.
