JUST IN: U.S. scores MAJOR strike against militant Islam

Unless it happens on our shores, we here in America tend to forget there’s a war against militant Islamists still being waged every day by our men and women in uniform “over there.”

And the good news is, we’re still making strides.

Today a U.S. drone strike took out al-Qaida’s number two man, Abu al-Khayr al-Masri in Syria.

The Mirror reports, Also known as Ahmad Hasan Abu al-Khayr al-Masri, he served as a deputy to the terror group’s leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

The 59-year-old’s death was reported by a number of experts on the Middle East and terrorism, including Charles Lister of the Middle East Institute.

Photos and video posted on social media suggested he was targeted by a drone as he travelled in a car on Sunday.

Pictures show a Kia car on the side of a road with a massive hole in its roof, with footage showing the difficult removal of a body from the vehicle’s demolished interior.

Wonder if President Trump will take a victory lap as President Obama did when Osama bin Laden was killed?

Probably not.
