The US-backed Coalition is helping Syria's democratic forces against the Isis fighters in the Al-Raqqa campaign with artillery bombardments and air strikes, including strikes targeting the organization's leaders.

The coalition said this month that its air strikes killed Turki al-Binali, a Bahraini cleric who was the organization's Mufti, the most well-known figure in the Arab Gulf states. He also announced killing Fawaz al-Rawi, the responsible for Funding ISIS organization, in an air strike, in Syria last week.
