CAIRO – 31 May 2017: The Libyan militant Mohammed Saeed El-Dorsy, a member of terrorist organization the Libyan Fighting Group, has been reportedly injured in airstrikes carried out by the Egyptian Air Force on militant hotbeds in Derna, Libya, according to social media pages linked to local Libyan terrorist groups.
El-Dorsy travelled to Turkey in 2005 in order to join jihadi groups fighting U.S. troops in Iraq, although ultimately failed to reach Baghdad after first entering Syria.
He later crossed into Jordan where he was arrested in 2006 along with three other Iraqis on charges of planning to bomb hotels hosting American and Jewish guests, as well as Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA), according to the state-run News Agency of Libya.
In 2014, terrorist groups kidnapped the Jordanian ambassador to Libya Fawas al-Itan in order to press Jordanian officials to extradite el-Dorsy who had been jailed for 7 years in Jordan.
The Libyan media outlet also declared that militant leader Abou Mosaab el-Shaery has been reportedly killed in airstrikes carried out by the Egyptian Air Force across the border.
The Libyan fighter was a former commander in the Shura Council of Mujahideen in Derna affiliated to Al-Qaeda in Libya, according to the official Libyan news agency.
