Senior Al-Qaeda Commander in Syria Killed by US Army
The US military killed senior al-Qaeda leader Abdul Hamid al-Matar in a drone strike in Syria on Friday, October 22, a US Central Command spokesman said.
"The removal of this al Qaeda senior leader will disrupt the terrorist organization's ability to further plot and carry out global attacks threatening US citizens, our partners, and innocent civilians," US Army Major John Rigsbee said in a written statement.
The strike comes two days after a US outpost in southern Syria was attacked. Rigsbee did not say if the US drone strike was carried out in retaliation. (JPost / VFI News)
