Al-Masri, believed to be al Qaeda’s second-in-command, was killed during a special operation in the province of Ghazni province.

According to al-Qaeda’s own reports, Abu Muhsin al-Masri was born in Egypt in 1958 and joined militants fighting the USSR in Afghanistan in 1986. In 1989, he moved to Pakistan and joined “Maktab Al-Khidamat”, which later became a part of al-Qaeda. The eliminated terrorist was cordinating the group’s propaganda efforts and was a member of Al-Qaeda’s high council.
