BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:15 A.M.) – The Al-Qaeda terrorist organization announced the killing of its leader in Yemen, Qassem Al-Rimi, during a U.S. raid on the group’s positions.

According to the Reuters News Agency, Al-Qaeda confirmed the death of its infamous leader of its Arabian Peninsula division after a U.S. drone strike targeted his location.

Earlier, U.S. President Donald Trump announced the killing of al-Rimi in an anti- terrorist operation in Yemen a few weeks ago; however, Al-Qaeda did not comment on these claims until now.

The United States considers the branch of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to be one of the most dangerous branches of the terrorist organization.

Al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has remained active during the Yemeni conflict, often attacking both the government and Ansarallah forces in several parts of the country, including Al-Bayda.

Este grupo no es atacado por las fuerzas Saudíes en Yemen. Al-Qaeda también tiene presencia en Libia…


Qaeda is an enemy to the Yemeni state just like the Houthis.
Any way, jihadists, no matter if Sunni or Shia, are enemies to humanity.
