President Donald Trump has confirmed that the U.S. killed the leader of the Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula jihadist group who claimed responsibility for a mass shooting at an American naval base.
To say that President Trump is on a roll just might be the understatement of the year, he is on much more than a roll. With poll numbers soaring, acquittal from the Senate, and a highly energized GOP that gives him a 92% approval rating, what more could you ask for? Earlier today, President Trump announced that on his direction an operation was carried out in Yemen which resulted in the death of the Al-Qaeda leader Qassim al-Rimi who was behind the attacks at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida last year. Yes sir, the president is on a roll.
President Donald Trump confirms al-Qaeda leader Qassim al-Rimi has been killed in U.S. operation in Yemen
FROM DAILY MAIL UK: President Trump said in a statement on Thursday that the U.S. at his direction conducted a counter-terrorism operation in Yemen that killed Qassim al-Rimi. Al-Rimi is a founder of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
The group has long been considered the global network’s most dangerous branch for its attempts to carry out attacks on the U.S. mainland. The jihadist group claimed responsibility for last year’s deadly shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola, where a Saudi aviation trainee killed three American sailors.
While Trump confirmed reports that al-Rimi had been killed, he did not say when the U.S. operation was conducted or offer any details about how it was carried out. He did, however, say that the U.S. and its allies are safer as a result of al-Rimi’s death.
‘We will continue to protect the American people by tracking down and eliminating terrorists who seek to do us harm,’ Trump said.
Trump’s announcement confirmed earlier indications that al-Rimi had been killed. In late January, a suspected U.S. drone strike destroyed a building housing al-Qaida militants in eastern Yemen. Also, on February 1, Trump retweeted several other tweets and media reports that seemed to offer confirmation that the strike had killed al-Rimi. Al-Rimi had said in an 18-minute video that his group was responsible for the December 6 shooting at the base. READ MORE
