US OFFERS US$10M REWARD FOR SYRIA REBEL LEADER

WASHINGTON, May 11 (NNN-AGENCIES) — The Trump administration is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information about the whereabouts of the military leader of Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra Front.

The State Department says the reward will be paid for information leading to the identification or location of Abu Mohammed al-Golani. The offer is the first under the department’s Rewards for Justice Program for a Nusra Front leader.

In a statement, the department said that the group under Golani’s leadership had committed numerous attacks in Syria, including many against civilians, since 2013.

Golani, a Syrian national believed to be in his 40s, has been identified by the US as a specially designated global terrorist since 2013 and subject to US and international sanctions, including an asset freeze and travel ban.

The Nusra Front is designated a foreign terrorist organization by the US. In 2016, it changed its name to the Fatah al-Sham Front and formally cut ties with al-Qaeda last year, but is still widely seen as being linked to the global terror network. — NNN-AGENCIES
