A major Al-Qaeda operative of Arab origin was among six militants killed overnight in a suspected US missile strike in northwest Pakistan, a senior security official told AFP Wednesday.
Security sources identified the militant as Abdullah Azam al-Saudi, a senior member in Osama bin Laden's Al-Qaeda network.
"He was a senior commander of Al-Qaeda and was involved in recruiting and training of fighters," the senior official said.
According to US intelligence shared with Pakistan, al-Saudi was the main link between Al-Qaeda's senior command and Taliban networks in the Pakistani border region, an Islamabad-based senior security official said.
"He was the man coordinating between Al-Qaeda and Taliban commanders on this side of the border, and also involved in recruiting and training fighters," the official told AFP.
He is the second high-profile Al-Qaeda operative killed in recent US missile strikes in Pakistan's rugged tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Most excellent news.
There are no bag limits on Al-Qaeda and Taliban.
More dead jihadis. Excellent
It’s always open season on Al-Qaeda......
Joos did it.
I’m almost sure we bombed a wedding or a mass birthday party for one year old disabled peaceful arab babies...
Great news. It sure looks like the Paki Intel corps is no longer tipping off these HVTs. Let the official Paki complaints go on, if it must, as they allow us and most likely aid us in taking out these scum bags in all the FATA.
Another Baby Milk Factory disappears in a ball of flame...
This is almost funny how we can’t get Osama Bin Laden.
Who would have thought this seven years ago?
I expect the number of operations like this to decrease considerably once Zero gets sworn in.
HOORAY ! Another one gone. Maybe he will be reunited with Osama in Hell.
I like the way the Predator leaves the rubble in neat piles.
Yay! Shoot him again- just to be sure
I'm going to ask you to find ONE MAN hiding along the 1,500 mile US-Canada border. With people on both sides of that border...helping him hide
Now still think it's so funny and easy?
