Top Al-Qaeda leader killed in Syria: Pentagon


Recommended Posts

In a significant blow to Al-Qaeda, a commander of the terror outfit, who played a key role in sending new recruits from Pakistan to Syria has been killed in a coalition air strike, the Pentagon announced yesterday.

Abdul Mohsen Adballah Ibrahim al Charekh, also known as Sanafi al-Nasr, a Saudi national and highest ranking leader of the network of veteran al-Qaeda operatives also called the 'Khorasan Group,' was killed in the air strike on October 15.

"The United States will not relent in its mission to degrade, disrupt and destroy al-Qaeda and its remnants," said Secretary of Defense Ash Carter.

"This operation deals a significant blow to the Khorasan Group's plans to attack the United States and our allies, and once again proves that those who seek to do us harm are not beyond our reach," Carter said.
