US name 3 terrorists, offering $5 million reward for information about them
Abu ‘Abd Al-Karim Al-Masri has repeatedly openly threatened Russia through Islamist media.
The US State Department is ready to pay $5 million to anyone who gives information about the leaders of the Khurras Ad-Din* group, which is an al-Qaeda* branch operating in Syria.
It concerns Syrian Faruq Al-Suri, a native of Egypt, Abu ‘Abd Al-Karim Al-Masri, and Jordanian Sami al-Uraydi. All of them are senior leaders in the al-Qaida terrorist organization*. It is also known that they took the oath to the group leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Faruq Al-Suri can be considered a “veteran of jihad.” He began his ‘career’ during the Afghan war in the 90s. He later trained al Qaeda* militants in Iraq. Then he returned to Syria, where he participated in battles against the government forces of the SAR.
Abu Al-Karim Al-Masri is primarily known in Russia for spreading numerous threats against Moscow and Washington on his own behalf. In addition, he is a mediator in the relationship between the jihadists from Khurras Ad-Din* and Kha'yat Tahrir Al-Sham*. The Egyptian is considered one of the governors of al-Qaeda in the territory of the SAR. There is unconfirmed evidence that he is a member of the Supreme Council of Khurras Ad-Din.
Islamist scholar and Head of the group's Sharia court Sami al-Uraydi appeared in al-Qaeda videos on the occasion of the anniversaries of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Therefore, the desire of the US authorities to catch him is understandable.
It is noteworthy that Americans have conducted only two special operations in Syria against al-Qaeda militants* this year.
