Ayman al-Zawahiri MORE INFORMATION

Officials at the White House declined to confirm al Zawahiri’s Dead. They said in a statement that the US conducted a “successful” counterterrorism operation against a critical al-Qaeda target, with “no civilian deaths.”

In an evening address from the White House on August 1, President Joe Biden stated that US intelligence personnel tracked al-Zawahiri to a residence in downtown Kabul where he was hiding out with his family. The operation was approved by the President last week and carried out on Sunday.

Al-Zawahiri and the better-known Osama bin Laden plotted the 9/11 attacks. It introduced many ordinary Americans to al-Qaeda for the first time. Bin Laden was assassinated in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, by US Navy Seals following a nearly decade-long pursuit.

“He will never, never, never allow Afghanistan to become a terrorist safe haven because he is gone, and we will make certain that nothing else happens,” Mr. Biden added.

“This terrorist leader is no longer with us,” he added.

The operation is a huge counterterrorism victory for the Biden administration, coming only 11 months after American soldiers left the country following a two-decade conflict. Joe Biden also paid tribute to US intelligence for extraordinary persistence and skill in making mission a success.
