An ISIS leader tied to the Paris terror attacks has been killed in Syria.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Washington:

U.S. led airstrikes have killed several ISIS leaders this month, including a Christmas Eve hit that killed Charaffe al Mouadan, an ISIS planner, the Pentagon says had a direct link to the ringleader of the Paris attacks...

(Warren) "al Moudan was actively planning additional attacks against the West."

Colonel Steve Warren says the coalition is still targeting what he calls the head of the snake...

Iraqi security forces did score a major victory this week, securing a government center in the city of Ramadi, which ISIS captured in the Spring.
