#BreakingNews Al Qaeda’s No. 2 in Afghanistan killed in air strike, NATO says

“AL-Qaeda’s second most senior leader in Afghanistan, a key figure in commanding attacks on foreign forces, has been killed in an air strike, NATO has announced.

Sakhr al Taifi, a Saudi, was killed in a precision air strike Sunday in northeastern Kunar Province.

“Sakhr al Taifi, also known as Musthaq and Nasim, was al Qaeda’s second highest leader in Afghanistan, responsible for commanding foreign insurgents, in addition to directing attacks against coalition and Afghan forces,” NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said in a statement.

Taifi traveled frequently between Afghanistan and Pakistan and carried out orders from the terror network’s senior leadership, ISAF said.

He armed insurgents in eastern Afghanistan and also organized the transport of militants into the country.

Taifi was identified along with another al Qaeda terrorist and targeted in an air strike. No Afghan civilians were injured, the force said.”

  1. I wouldn’t 4988say it is potliness, although I would agree that the bulk of al Qaeda -induced deaths did likely occur in Iraq. Those figures are probably a bit more difficult to separate because some deaths were because of traditional combat and others, the result of terrorism. Plus, there are other classification issues. For instance, does a suicide bombing attack against soldiers really count as terrorism or a legitimate military tactic?
