 Israeli agents kill al-Qaeda's deputy chief in Iran, US media

  • US media have claimed that Israeli agents have killed al-Qaeda's deputy chief Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, also known as Abu Muhammad al-Masri, in an operation in Iran.
  • US media have claimed, citing intelligence sources, that Abu Muhammad al-Masri, al-Qaeda's second-in-command, was shot dead by two Israeli agents on a motorcycle in Tehran in August.
  • Along with Abu Muhammad al-Masri, his widowed daughter was also killed. Abu Muhammad al-Masri's daughter was the wife of Hamza bin Laden, the son of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
  • According to the New York Times, Israeli agents did this at the behest of the United States.
  • Al-Qaeda leader Abu Muhammad al-Masri was accused of attacking two US embassies in the African countries of Tanzania and Kenya in 1998, killing 224 people and wounding more than 5,000.
  • U.S. officials have announced a  10 million reward for information leading to the capture of Al-Masri.
  • Iran denies executing al-Qaeda pioneer in Tehran 
  • Then again, Iran has rejected that Abu Muhammad al-Masri was murdered in Tehran. 
  • A representative for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said that the United States and Israel keep on attempting to connect Iran to these fear based oppressor bunches by getting out bogus and unjustifiable word, to stay away from duty regarding the crimes of psychological militant gatherings in the area. 
  • The representative said that no al-Qaeda fear based oppressor was available on Iranian soil.
