 2 yrs | Key al-Qaeda figure Muhsin al-Fadhli killed in U.S. airstrike in Syria - Pentagon

              Key al-Qaeda figure Muhsin al-Fadhli, the leader of the so-called Khorasan Group which is made up of senior al-Qaeda members, has been killed in a U.S. airstrike in northwestern Syria, according to Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis. "His death will degrade and disrupt ongoing external operations of al-Qaeda against the United States and our allies and partners," Davis said. The Combined Joint Task Force (CJTF) previously reported that U.S.-led forces carried out an airstrike targeting the Khorasan Group near the town of Sarmada in Idlib province on July 8, striking a tactical unit and destroying a vehicle. The U.S. State Department's Rewards for Justice program had issued a $7 million reward in 2012 for information leading to al-Fadhli. [statement attached]
