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?
I didn’t say it was easy. But on September 11 2001 , didn’t you think Osamaa would have been caught within a year or so?
Score one for Bin Laden, he is one crafty snake . . if he is still alive, which everyone seems to think he is.
Sending Jihadis to ‘Paradise’ as fast as possible. We care. We want them to have their 72 virgins because we know they aren’t getting any here on earth.
Vegas WOULD NOT have given you odds that BinnieBoy would still be around after 7 years.
Well, IIRC, we never caught Pancho Villa either.
If not caught by Jan 20, a major black mark on Bush.
Praise Allah, we got another one.
Obama will put a stop to this and restore our good name in the world
Please, Allah, if I may only live another 62 days, all will be right!

When one understands the region or has operated out of there.....it isn't. But we'll put guns on him one of these bogey-dark nights.
Ya look how long it took them to get Eric Rudolph.. and that was just pure luck.
