    I googled in Wikipedia with the search terms "Salafist Group for Call and Combat", and got redirected to the entry "al Queda in the Islamic Maghreb". [Me: smilie in boat without oars, looking at us sadly.]

    I could see that being the case. As long as you aren't near the top of the chain-of-command you don't have much to worry about.

I guess that is to be expected with drone strikes where you don't have anyone on the ground who can confirm it or gather evidence for it to be confirmed.

    ISIS leader Tariq al-Harzi Killed

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/02/middle...leader-killed/


    (CNN)Senior ISIS leader Tariq al-Harzi -- a man known as the "emir of suicide bombers" -- was killed by a coalition airstrike in Syria last month, a U.S. official said Thursday.

    Al-Harzi played a key logistical role for ISIS, overseeing efforts to get jihadists and weapons into Iraq and Syria to fuel the militant organization's war machine, according to U.S. authorities.

    The Tunisian, believed to be one of the first foreign fighters to join ISIS, also helped organize the Sunni extremist group's devastating use of suicide and vehicle-borne bombs in Iraq, the U.S. Department of Defense said.

    "This was a big get," said Mike Rogers, a CNN national security commentator and former chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee. "It will be very disruptive to their operation for at least some period of time."
