How horrible. :(

I hope it was a pork filled missile and I hope he rots in hell.


BEIRUT (AP) An airstrike has killed a top al-Qaida commander and two other fighters in Syria, activists said Saturday, but it was not immediately clear whether it was carried out by the U.S.-led coalition or Russian warplanes.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Abdul Mohsen Abdallah Ibrahim al-Charekh, a Saudi better known as Sanafi al-Nasr, was killed Thursday in an airstrike near the northern Syrian town of Dana, along with another Saudi and a Moroccan member of al-Qaida's local affiliate, known as the Nusra Front.

Russian warplanes have been carrying out airstrikes in Syria since Sept. 30. A U.S.-led coalition has been targeting the Nusra Front and the Islamic State group for more than a year.

The Observatory's chief Rami Abdurrahman said it was not clear if al-Charekh was killed by U.S. or Russian warplanes. The Observatory, which relies on a network of activists inside Syria, said an Egyptian commander escaped the bombing. It said all four men had been dispatched to Syria by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri.

Jihadi activists on social media say al-Charekh was killed by a U.S. drone strike.

The Syrian Observatory for human rights is a weirdo working from his 2 bedroom house in Coventry (where I live as well coincidentally)

The (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syrian_Observatory_for_Human_Rights)United Kingdom (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom)-based SOHR is run out of a two-bedroom terraced home in (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syrian_Observatory_for_Human_Rights)Coventry (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coventry) by one person, Rami Abdulrahman (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syrian_Observatory_for_Human_Rights)

He regularly goes on about airstrikes from Russia killing civilians, he does not say his sources Rami just says it.
