Daesh leader killed in American raid in Somalia

A leader of the Daesh group, identified as Bilal al-Sudani, and “about ten people” linked to the terrorist organization were killed on Wednesday in a US raid in Somalia, the US executive said on Thursday.

“Al-Sudani was responsible for encouraging the Islamic State group’s growing presence in Africa and funding its operations around the world, including in Afghanistan,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a statement.

“President Biden has made it very clear that we are committed to finding and eliminating all terrorist threats against the United States and against the American people, wherever they are, even in the most remote places,” another White House official said.

Last August, the leader of Al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, was killed on his balcony in Afghanistan by an American drone strike.
