A senior al-Qaeda commander has been killed along with two other terrorists in an airstrike in Syria, says a UK-based monitoring group.

According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on Saturday, Abdul Mohsen Abdallah Ibrahim al-Charekh, a Saudi national also known as Sanafi al-Nasr, was killed in a strike along with two other members of the Qaeda affiliate group al-Nusra in the northern Syrian town of Dana on Thursday.

The terrorists released pictures of a car along with several corpses claiming that they were those of Charekh, who was allegedly a senior strategist and an important power broker for al-Qaeda, and the other militants.
