The Pentagon reported the death of the participant of the attack on Charlie Hebdo

The drone of the U.S. air force destroyed involved in the attack on the editor Charlie Hebdo militant “Islamic state” (declared a terrorist organization and prohibited in Russia). This was stated by the Pentagon, reports The Assocated Press.

We are talking about Boubaker al-Hakim. According to “bi-Bi-si”, he was one of the leaders of ISIS. The military believe that al-Hakim had planned the attack on the offices of satirical publication Charlie Hebdo in Paris in January 2015. In their opinion, it was the mentors of the terrorists who broke into the editorial office. He also, according to the Agency, “played a significant role” in promoting the ideas of ISIS abroad.

The Agency reports that he was killed last month in raqqa that the terrorists considered the capital of the “Islamic state”.

In 2008, al-Hakim was arrested in Syria, but was serving his sentence in France, as he was a citizen of this country. At that time, law enforcement believed that he was a member of the group of the most radical young people of Paris. In early 2011, al-Hakim was released from prison and went to Tunisia, says the Agency. There being a militant ISIL, three years later, he took responsibility for the killing of several political figures.
