The Syrian army took responsibility for killing the late leader of the Islamic State (ISIS), Abu al-Hassan al-Hashemi al-Qurashi, last month in the country's southern province of Deraa.

According to a report published by the state news agency SANA on Friday, Syrian security forces confirmed the military operation to kill Al-Qurashi involved both the army and local groups.

The United States Defense Department and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces previously said they weren't involved in this operation. ISIS noted earlier this week in a brief statement that its leader Al-Qurashi was killed in combat.
