US officials have confirmed to the press that a drone strike in Syria earlier this month killed a senior Al Qaeda leader.

Back on September 20th there was chatter about a US drone strike in Idlib, Syria. But at the time of the initial reporting, exacts on who was targeted weren’t clear.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a U.S. coalition in the region carried out the attack, with initial reporting by France24 claiming two dead.

"Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP that one of the commanders killed was Tunisian while the other was from Yemen or Saudi Arabia, without identifying the group they belonged to."

However, today according to Fox News the Al Qaeda leader that was killed is Salim Abu-Ahmad. He’s said to be an orchestrator of international-level attacks carried out by the group.

"There are no indications of civilian casualties," these officials clarified to the outlet.

Army Major John Rigsbee (CENTCOM spokesperson) made as much clear in his statement to Military Times:

"This strike continues U.S. operations to degrade international terrorist networks and target terrorist leaders who seek to attack the U.S. homeland and its interests and allies abroad."

It’s also said that this isn’t the first of it’s kind as the region of Idlib and the Aleppo area are under the control of Syrian opposition groups with Al Qaeda links.

At the time of the September 20th strike, the media’s attention was on the Biden White House’s admitted drone strike of ten civilians in Afghanistan.
