An ISIS leader has been killed in an airstrike in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, residents and a local medical source said Thursday.Hamdouni had been the ISIS 'wali,' or governor, of Mosul, which was captured by the group in June and is the largest city in a self-declared ISIS caliphate straddling the border between northern Iraq and eastern Syria.A senior Iraqi official told Reuters earlier this month that Mosul was the focus of government efforts to defeat ISIS, because of the city's size and symbolic status after Baghdadi's speech there.ISIS fighters faced another setback this week when Iraqi officials said they had broken a five-month siege of the Beiji oil refinery, Iraq's largest, on Tuesday.
