Kuwaiti Al-Qaida Figure Killed In US Drone Strike

by Florian Flade

He loved to give lectures. Sheikh Khalid Abdur Rahman al-Hussainan, a Kuwaiti national, became one of the most prominent Al-Qaida figures in recent years. Numerous of his lectures were released by the terrorist organization´s media wing As-Sahab including several „Ramadan lessons“.

Al-Hussainan is dead now. He was killed Friday morning by a US drone strike in the Pakistani tribal region North Waziristan while – according to Jihadi sources – eating his „dawn meal“ (breakfast).

According to US intelligence sources Al-Hussainan aka „Abu Zaid al-Kuwaiti“ was the successor of Abu Yahya al-Libi, a Libyan Al-Qaida commander killed several months ago in a similar drone strike.

The Kuwaiti Al-Qaida cleric had allegedly worked as an official in the Ministry of Religious Affairs of Kuwait before joining the Jihadist in Afghanistan.
