Libya: US Airstrike kills high-ranking al Qaeda commander

(Ubari)  US Africa Command have revealed this evening that they took out Musa Abu Dawud, a high-ranking commander for al-Qa’ida 5 days ago.

The strike which took place on the 24th March which was in conjunction with the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA), near the town of  Ubari, Libya, on March 24, killed two al-Qa’ida terrorists, including Musa Abu Dawud, a high ranking al-Qa’ida in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) official.
Dawud trained AQIM recruits in Libya for attack operations in the region. He provided critical logistics support, funding and weapons to AQIM, enabling the terrorist group to threaten and attack U.S. and Western interests in the region.
