HAVE THAT! Top jihadi ANNIHILATED by US airstrike just hours after blitzing of ISIS chief
Sheikh Abu al Faraj al Masri, who became a prominent member of al-Qaeda’s Syrian offshoot, was killed when the vehicle he was travelling in was hit in Idlib, in the northwest of Syria.
Masri spent years in prison in his native Egypt after plotting with Islamist fanatics but later left for Afghanistan.
Jihadi Abu Mohammad al Shami said: “May God accept him as a martyr who was killed in a Crusader raid."
The Pentagon confirmed in a statement that the extremist was the target of a US air strike on Monday.
The statement read: "We are still assessing the results of the strike.”
