Well this is extremely welcome news if true. The leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq was killed.
Unconfirmed reports Tuesday indicated that Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Ayyub al-Masri had died in fighting between rival militant groups north of the Iraqi capital, according to an Interior Ministry spokesman.
“We received intelligence reports of al-Masri getting killed in clashes between al-Qaeda in Iraq and other militant groups, at dawn today, in al-Niba’ie in Taji, north of Baghdad,” Brig. Gen. Abdul Karim Khalaf said. (CNN)
For more go to The Jawa Report. As they state, cross your fingers as Iraq is known for its bogus reporting on the deaths of terrorist leaders. We shall see if this pans out.
