Abu Khayr al-Masri, the deputy leader of Al-Qaeda was reportedly killed by one of these missiles in February 2017.
His car was shredded by the ‘Ninja missile’ as he drove through Idlib in northern Syria.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the goal of the weapon is to reduce unintended casualties caused by other more conventional missiles that detonate and engulf both targets and their surroundings.
The US military leaked details of the new missile to improve its image in the Muslim world in an effort to show they are trying to reduce collateral damage, it…
I remember puzzling over these cuts for ages trying to work out what had hit the car of Abu Khayr al-Masri, deputy leader of Al-Qaeda.
