In Washington, announced the elimination of one of the leaders of al-Qaeda


US President Donald Trump on Thursday officially announced the destruction of the so-called emir Al Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula (banned in the Russian Federation) Kashima al-Rimi. This was first reported by CNN on February 1, citing informed sources in Washington. But since at that time there was still no reliable supporting data, they decided to wait a while with an official statement on the elimination of the terrorist.


Donald Trump said that the leader of the militants was destroyed during an airstrike on extremist positions in Yemen. Together with him, his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri also died.

Qasim al-Rimi has been a member of the al-Qaeda organization banned in Russia since the 90s, when he began acting under the leadership of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. He later moved to Yemen, where he carried out a series of terrorist attacks on civilians, and also organized attacks on American troops, including in the United States.

In announcing the liquidation of Qasim al-Rimi, Donald Trump stated the following:

We will continue to defend the American people by tracking down terrorists who seek to harm us.

The White House believes that the deaths of Al-Qaeda leaders reduce the influence of this extremist organization in the Middle East region and bring it closer to death.

    Strange things are happening. Americans are fighting terrorism with one hand.
    The White House believes that the deaths of Al-Qaeda leaders reduce the influence of this extremist organization in the Middle East region and bring it closer to death.

    And the other is being protected by terrorists.
    In the US, they announced their intention to prevent the Syrian army from liberating Idlib.

    The US State Department issued a statement in which it warned of intentions to bomb the positions of the Syrian army in Idlib along with Turkish "colleagues", calling it the main goal to prevent the release of the region by the Syrian army.

      Ours are already stopping this offensive. The Russian military delegation will arrive in Turkey against the backdrop of the Idlib incident. A military delegation from Russia will arrive in Turkey on February 8. She will come to discuss the situation in Syrian Idlib. As the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, the military of the two countries communicate with each other every day. The talks on Saturday will be aimed at "ending the aggression of the Syrian regime," as the Turkish minister noted.
      The parties will also discuss the prevention of a humanitarian catastrophe and accelerate the political process in Syria. "We will discuss issues on Idlib, and if necessary, our leaders will meet after that," Cavusoglu added. https://www.mk.ru/politics/2020/02/07/voennaya-delegaciya-rossii-priedet-v-turciyu-na-fone-incidenta-v-idlibe.html

      Normal situation. They also quarreled headlong - they declare the elimination of their own employee:
      Qasim al-Rimi has been a member of the al-Qaeda organization banned in Russia since the 90s, when he began acting under the leadership of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan.

      Osama - their man, was spanked, this one too, Saddam - again the creature of the USA, even Assad - probably the most pro-Western politician in the BV, everyone got from the USA, And the question is - is it not better then to fight with the USA, and not be friends - goals you will

    Using the conflict in Yemen, the Arabian al-Qaeda captured the leading ports of Mukalla and Al-Shihr in the province of Hadramaut. The Islamic Emirate of Mukalla repeats the borders of the Quaitid Sultanate, which existed until 1967. Al Qaeda controls 600 km of the coast in the Gulf of Aden, through which a third of the world's oil supplies are transported. Customs racket from passing ships provides terrorists with a daily profit of $ 2 million, while the total assets of the new quasi-state are estimated at $ 1,4 billion.
    The Saudis practically contributed to the emergence of this entity, and now are forced to fight it.
    How ALWAYS the Yankees create Chaos to justify their military intervention.

    And now there are none, these "reliable data." Donya was just waiting for the results of the impeachment Senate vote.

    Al Baghdadi was liquidated five times on Bis, and it’s not a fact that they finally bought it, but then they succeeded the first time. As Stanislavsky said - "I do not believe."

    Already at least the battalion of leaders has been destroyed, but what's the point ..?
    Most likely, the treasurers responsible for the supply and financing of terrorists are being cleared .. To make ends in the water .. well, well

    At this time, the deputy chief of the General Staff of Russia, who is suspected of embezzlement of 6,7 billion rubles, was detained and placed in a pre-trial detention center; these are really no analogues for NATO countries.
