Afghan security forces kill senior al Qaeda leader al-Masri

Kabul: Afghan security forces have killed Abu Muhsin al-Masri, a senior al-Qaeda leader who was on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Most Wanted Terrorists list, Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security says.

The head of the US National Counter-Terrorism Centre, Chris Miller, confirmed al-Masri’s death in a statement, saying his “removal … from the battlefield is a major setback to a terrorist organisation that is consistently experiencing strategic losses facilitated by the United States and its partners.”

Abu Muhsin al-Masri, also known as Husam Abd-al-Ra'uf, has reportedly been killed. He is wanted in connection with his membership in al-Qaeda, an organisation known for committing acts of terrorism against the government of the United States.

Al-Qaeda’s loss of al-Masri, Miller continued, “highlights the diminishing effectiveness of the terrorist organisation”.

Al-Masri has been charged in the United States with having provided material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organisation, and conspiracy to kill US nationals.
