WASHINGTON, July 22 : A U.S. airstrike in Syria has killed a key figure in a dangerous al-Qaida offshoot, the Defence Department said on Tuesday.
Muhsin al-Fadhli was killed in a July 8 air attack while travelling in a vehicle near Sarmada, Syria, Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis said in a statement. Davis did not further elaborate on the nature of the air strike, such as whether al-Fadhli was killed by a drone or a piloted aircraft.
Al-Fadhli was a leader of the Khorasan Group, a cadre of al-Qaida operatives who were sent from Pakistan to Syria to plot attacks on the West. Officials say the Khorasan Group is embedded in the al Nusra front, Syria's al-Qaida affiliate.     ?AP
