Australian Islamic State recruit Neil Prakash killed in US air strike in Iraq

Australian Islamic State terrorist Neil Prakash has been killed in a US air strike in Iraq.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was yesterday informed the ISIL recruiter had been killed in a targeted air strike on Mosul in Iraq on April 29.

The US government also said that the sister of Farhad Jabar, Shadi Jabar Khalil Mohammad and her Sudanese husband, were killed in an air strike on Al Bab in Syria on April 22.

The former student, aged in her 20s, lived with her family in Parramatta but fled the day before her 15-year-old brother was killed outside NSW Police headquarters after shooting dead police employee Curtis Cheng in October 2015.
