Afghanistan: US claims killing key al-Qaeda leader in Afghanistan


The US military confirmed on Friday it had killed al-Qaeda’s amir for north-eastern Afghanistan during an air strike last month, terming it a major blow to the militant group.

Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook confirmed the assault that killed Farouq al-Qahtani as a “precision strike” and said it took place on October 23 in Kunar, Afghanistan.

“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 in a statement.

He went on to say that another al-Qaeda leader in the country, Bilal al-Utabi, was targeted in a separate strike, though the results of that attack were still under the wraps.
