White House confirms the death of Al Qaeda leader in Yemen by US strike

Share

The United States has killed the leader of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), President Donald Trump said.

Qasim al-Raymi, who has led the jihadist group since 2015, was killed in a US operation in Yemen, the White House said. The jihadist leader had been linked to a series of attacks on Western interests in the 2000s. He took over the leadership after his predecessor was killed by a US drone strike.

The history of Al Qaeda

AQAP was formed in 2009 from two regional offshoots of Al-Qaeda in Yemen and in Saudi Arabia, with the goal of toppling US-backed governments and eliminating all Western influence in the region. Most of its attacks have been in Yemen, where it has taken advantage of political instability that has plagued the country for years.
