[h=1]US strike killed top Al-Qaeda leader in Afghanistan: Pentagon[/h]November 05, 2016 09:36

The United States has confirmed the death of a top Al-Qaeda leader in an air strike in northeastern Afghanistan last month, in a major blow to the terror group in the war-torn country.

"We can now confirm that the precision strike conducted by the US military on October 23 in Kunar, Afghanistan, resulted in the death of senior Al-Qaeda leader Faruq al-Qatani," the Pentagon Press Secretary, Peter Cook, said.

Al-Qatani was Al-Qaeda's emir for eastern Afghanistan and one of the terrorist group's senior plotters of attacks against the US, he said.

"This successful strike is another example of US operations to degrade international terrorist networks and target terrorist leaders who seek to attack the US homeland, our interests and our allies abroad," Cook said.
