The Afghan National Security Directorate said that al-Masri, believed to be the number two in al-Qaeda, was killed in a special operation in Ghazni province.
The FBI stated that the al-Qaeda activist, who was also called Hussam Abdel Raouf, was an Egyptian citizen born in 1958.
In September 2018, the United States issued a federal order to arrest al-Masry, after a US court in New York charged him with conspiracy to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, and conspiracy to kill US citizens.
Observers confirmed that Al-Masry was a prominent figure in the Al-Qaeda Shura Council, and one of the theorists of its strategy, in addition to assuming supervision over its media outlets, including Al-Sahab Media Foundation.
The second guy
It is believed that Abu Mohsen al-Masri was involved in managing the organization’s day-to-day operations, and he was probably the second man to take over the leadership of the organization, succeeding Al-Zawahiri.
The Jamestown website revealed that in 2019, in a letter from the Al Qaeda branch in Iraqi Kurdistan, the messengers addressed Al-Zawahiri and Abdul Raouf simultaneously, which means that there is a close relationship between them.
