A drone strike in Syria killed a married American couple who’d pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terror group and worked to recruit new jihadis overseas and online, ISIS-linked social media accounts revealed on Saturday.

The husband and wife were identified as Abu Issa Al-Amriki and Umm Issa Al-Amrikiah. They did not reveal their birth names. The terror group frequently uses the name “Al-Amriki” to refer to Americans.

The drone strike took place in late-April, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor.
