The men, named in a Pentagon statement as Salah Gourmat and Sammy Djedou, were members of so-called Islamic State (IS).

A third member of the group, linked to a failed terror plot in Belgium in 2015, was also killed.

The three were plotting attacks against Western targets at the time of the strike, the Pentagon said.
