"The United States has used a unique weapon to eliminate Kataib Hezbollah commander Abu Bakr al-Saadi," the Wall Street Journal wrote.

According to sources of the New York-based publication from the Pentagon, a Hellfire missile was used to kill the terrorist. It is a six-bladed aimed fire weapon. It hits only the intended target and does not cause damage to the people around it," the quoted US media also pointed out.

As the novini.bg team already wrote, the commander was liquidated on the night of February 7-8 this year. He was killed in a strike in eastern Baghdad.
