The U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) announced on Monday that it had carried out a drone strike against a senior leader of al-Qaeda located in the northern Syrian province of Idlib.

Navy Lt. Josie Lynne Lenny, a CENTCOM spokeswoman, said that “U.S. forces conducted a kinetic counterterrorism strike near Idlib, Syria, today [sic], on a senior al-Qaeda leader.”

“Initial indications are that we struck the individual we were aiming for, and there are no indications of civilian casualties as a result of the strike.” Lt. Lenny did not identify the target of the airstrike.

The Pentagon confirmed the report later on Monday although Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby declined to answer any questions about the drone strike during a press briefing.
