Osama bin Laden's son was killed by the United States in the last hours
Recently, President Donald Trump confirmed that the son of the former leader of Al-Qaeda, was killed by the United States. Hamza bin Laden held a high rank in the terrorist group. The incident occurred in a region between Afghanistan and Pakistan, being eliminated in an anti-terrorist operation.
Hamza bin Laden was a prominent al-Qaeda leader
" The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives al-Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but undermines important operational activities of the group," the White House said.
Hamza bin Laden was wanted by the FBI as responsible for continuing with Al-Qaeda's plans and representing an opposition to the interests of the United States. It was maintaining its strength in the Afghan region. According to US sources, he was an active leader of terrorism and managed what was necessary for the violence to continue in the region.
The last time he was seen in public was in 2018, when he threatened Saudi Arabia, demanding that the monarchy leave that country. However, since then there had been no news of Hamza bin Laden.
However, the death of Osama bin Laden's son had been under investigation for several weeks, since July some White House officials had reported that there were serious indications that Hamza bin Laden had been killed.
Until today the pronouncement was official, which suggests that they managed to fully identify the operation. In this way, one of the most representative leaders of Al-Qaeda is killed.
