Asim Omar chief of Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent killed in joint US-Afghan operation

Along with the initial statement, the Afghan National Directorate of Security (NDS) shared pictures showing Umar both alive and dead. A United States treasury statement on Umar's designation as a "specially designated global terrorist" in June 2016 gave his place of birth as Sambhal and said he was born between 1974 and 1976.

Afghanistan's National Directorate for Security said in a statement Tuesday that the raid on September 23 killed Asim Omar along with six other al Qaeda members in the southern Helmand province.

The NDS said Umar was killed with six other AQIS members, a lot of them Pakistanis. Among them was Raihan, Umar's courier to Al-Zawahiri. "They had been embedded inside the Taliban compound in the #Taliban stronghold of Musa Qala", it said.

A top al-Qaeda leader has been killed in a joint US-Afghan military operation, according to Afghanistan's intelligence agency.

A U.S. Air Force AC-130 gunship later leveled the compound, but provincial officials told the Associated Press that 40 people attending a wedding party in the area were killed from those airstrikes. U.S. -Taliban peace talks are now tabled. One of the key conditions in the talks, which broke down last month, was that the Taliban would not allow al Qaeda and other terror groups to operate from Afghan soil.

The Indian daily said Omar was born in Sambhal city of India's northern Uttar Pradesh province, and went to Pakistan in 1995 and joined the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM) group before joining AQIS.

So, if you've got a home in the country side and want a little entertainment with your dinner, you know where to look. The Draconids will appear to break out into the night sky from the constellation Draco the Dragon - their namesake.

In June 2016, the U.S. state department announced the designation of both Umar and AQIS as terrorists.

Umar has headed AQIS since its formation in September 2014.

The middle-aged Umar was relatively unknown when he was picked to lead the newly created AQIS in 2014.

It has also claimed responsibility for the murders of activists and writers in Bangladesh, including that of US citizen Avijit Roy, US Embassy local employee Xulhaz Mannan, and of Bangladeshi nationals Oyasiqur Rahman Babu, Ahmed Rajib Haideer and AKM Shafiul Islam. He later travelled to Pakistan where he studied at the Darul Uloom Haqqania Nowshera, the seminary which is dubbed as the "University of Jihad".

Umar - an alias - was named by al-Zawahiri in a video message.
