The UN, in their statement, said the master bomb-maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri may have been killed. He was the master behind an attempt to blow up an airliner over Detroit in Yemen in 2017 according to a UN team that keep track on terrorist groups. The UN report says that Ibrahim al-Asiri has long been regarded as one of the most dangerous terrorists in the World. The UN report does not include how al-Asiri died or who was responsible for his death and can make a public statement of his possible death. The United States, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates governments have done terrorism checks on strikes to confirm the status of Al Qaeda and other terrorists in Yemen. The US military has carried out 131 airstrikes and also conducted 34 strikes this year, all targeting al Qaeda. No countries have declared publicly the results of their check till date. Anti-terrorist analyst said there should be a significant major reason al-Asiri’s possible death. AQAP has not released any statement regarding his death. In 2009, he attempted to detonate the “underwear bomb” in a flight in Detroit. This several plots made AQAP one of the most dangerous and enduring terrorist group. The group has long had the goal of attacking the US directly with efforts to make bombs for years, and al-Asiri played an important role in achieving that feat. Al-Asiri is widely known for his perfect making of miniaturized bombs with little or no metal content that could pass some security screenings in airports. He has come close on US territory to wreak devastation in the past and this as made him a direct threat to the United States He also designed the “underwear bomb” worn by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian who tried to blow up an airliner as it was landing in Detroit in 2009. He also masterminded other terror plots and assassination attempt earlier that year. In August 2009, Al-Asiri created a small bomb that contains 100g of a powdery explosive which was worn by his younger brother Abdullah in a failed attempt to assassinate Chief Prince Muhammad bin Nayef, a Saudi Arabia’s anti-terrorist. In October 2010, Al-Asiri was also the mastermind of the “printer bomb” plan where explosive devices were found inside printers shipped from Dubai and the UK. The goods were shipped from Yemen. The most recent public statement attributed to him was a written speech released by AQAP on September 12, 2017, to coincide with the sixteenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Al-Asiri used the occasion to promote an ongoing war against the United States.
