London, Asharq Al-Awsat- A Saudi security source confirmed yesterday that 36-year-old Younes Mohamed Ibrahim Al-Hayari, the most wanted terror suspect from the list of 36 issued by the Saudi Interior Ministry recently, used his real name during terrorist operations. He reported that Saudi and Moroccan security authorities have become aware of this and have exchanged relevant information.

A Moroccan security source told Asharq Al-Awsat that the name, Younes Mohamed Ibrahim Al-Hayari, was unknown to Moroccan intelligence and that they expected the name to be just an alias. He pointed out that Moroccan security bodies are involved in the matter, and have begun their investigations into the real identity of Al-Hayari.

A Saudi security official told Asharq Al-Awsat, &#34Security authorities believe that Al-Hayari is the most dangerous suspect on the list. And we can categorize him as holding the leadership position in the Al-Qaeda Terror network.&#34

It was also reported that Fatiha Taher Hosny, the wife of Abdel Karim Al Tuhami Al Majati, who was killed with his son in last April”s Al-Ras incident in Saudi Arabia, denied that she had any knowledge of the name Al-Hayari. She only knew the assumed names of the members of the group with whom she lived in Riyadh before she was arrested, and became aware of their real names only after returning to Morocco.
