A high al-Qaida leader is useless after a US drone strike in Syria, the military introduced Friday.
Abdul Hamid al-Matar was killed by the airstrike in the northwest part of the nation, in keeping with Army Maj. John Rigsbee, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command.
“The removal of this al Qaeda senior leader will disrupt the terrorist organization’s ability to further plot and carry out global attacks threatening U.S. citizens, our partners, and innocent civilians,” Rigsbee mentioned.
The assault on al-Matar got here two days after a US outpost in southern Syria was struck by drones and rockets. No troops have been harmed, officers mentioned.
