A suspected U.S. drone strike has claimed the life of Abu Yahya al-Uzbeki, an infamous jihadist, in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

A drone targeted al-Uzbeki’s SUV, a silver Hyundai Santa Fe, south of the town of Sarmada in northern Idlib on August 13 noon. Al-Uzbeki was killed on the spot. Other individuals were reportedly injured.

Photos from the strike scene indicate that a U.S.-made AGM-114R9X Hellfire missile was used. The missile is a Hellfire copy with a kinetic warhead consisting of pop-out blades meant to reduce collateral damage. The missile is famous as the “Ninja Bomb.”

According to jihadist sources, Abu Yahya al-Uzbeki, a Uzbek citizen, worked as an independent military trainer for several factions in Greater Idlib, including al-Qaeda-affiliated Horas al-Din.

Al-Uzbeki used to cooperate with Abu Ahmad al-Muhajir, “al-Jazaery,” who was killed in a U.S. drone strike on the town of Atmeh in northern Idlib in December 2019. Al-Jazaery was also targeted with an AGM-114R9X missile.

U.S. drone strikes killed a number of prominent jihadists in Greater Idlib and Turkish-occupied areas in northern Aleppo in over the past few months. In recent years, these regions have become a safe haven for terrorist groups.
