News Desk: Al-Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahiri was killed in a CIA drone strike in Afghanistan’s Kabul, confirmed US president Joe Biden.
He said “Since the United States delivered justice to bin Laden 11 years ago, Zawahiri has been a leader of al-Qaeda. From hiding, he co-ordinated al-Qaeda’s branches and all around the world, including setting priorities for providing operational guidance and calling for and inspired attacks against US targets. Now justice has been delivered and this terrorist leader is no more”.
“No matter how long it takes, no matter where you hide, if you are a threat to our people, the United States will find you and take you out. We shall never waver from defending our nation and its people” he added.
In addition, the US president also said “Zawahiri had also masterminded other acts of violence, including the suicide bombing of the USS Cole naval destroyer in Aden in October 2000 which killed 17 US sailors, and the 1998 attacks on the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania”.
