Al-Masri worked in Syria closely with Jabhat Fatah al-Sham. Leaders of other jihadist groups in the area agree that Al-Masri has been killed.

The Pentagon confirmed Sunday, with an unmanned plane, a rocket to have fired on a terrorist target in the noodwesten of Syria, but gave nothing free about the identity of that target.

Al-Masri (59), a son-in-law of Osama bin laden, was seen as the number two of al-Qaeda behind Ayman al-Zawahiri, as well as he coming out of Egypt.

Ideological leader

Hisham al-Hashimi, an expert on salafi groups from Baghdad, said in The Guardian that the elimination of al-Masri, a major blow for al-Qaeda. “Just as significant as the death of Bin laden. Al-Masri was the ideological leader of the organization in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.”
