U.S. kill Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in drone strike


A U.S. drone strike has killed Ayman al-Zawahri, the leader of the terrorist organization Al Qaeda.

The operation had brought justice, according to President Joe Biden, who added that the families of those killed in the 9/11 attacks on the United States in 2001 would have received "one more measure of closure."

Mr. Biden declared, "Justice has been served, and this terrorist commander is no more." "People no longer need to be afraid of the ruthless and determined killer,"

Mr. Biden revealed that U.S. intelligence agents found Mr. al-Zawahri hiding with his family at a house in Kabul, Afghanistan.

The procedure was authorized last week and was completed on Sunday. The 9/11 attacks were planned by Osama bin Laden and Mr. Al-Zawahri. Al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian surgeon with a $25 million bounty on his head, is reputed to be one of the deadliest terrorists in the world. 

In the 9/11 attacks, four hijacked commercial aircraft were flown into the World Trade Center's twin towers in New York, the Pentagon outside of Washington, D.C., and a field in Pennsylvania, killing roughly 3,000 people. 

The U.S. Navy SEALs conducted an operation in Pakistan in 2011 that resulted in Mr. Bin Laden's death.

The strike, according to former president Barack Obama, was a credit to Mr. Biden's leadership and to intelligence agents "who have been working for decades for this moment," he said on Monday night. 

"Tonight's news is another evidence that terrorism can be defeated without going to war in Afghanistan. 

Obama posted on Twitter, "And I hope it brings some tiny measure of peace to the families of 9/11 and everyone else who has suffered at the hands of al-Qaeda. 

Since the departure of American troops and diplomats from Afghanistan in August 2021, the drone attack is the first known American strike inside the country.
