Tags: Person in news International News

The United States of America president Joe Biden announced on 2 August 2022 that the Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a "precision" strike in the centre of Kabul, Afghanistan on 31 July 2022.

  • The United States government had announced a bounty of $25 million on him.
  • According to the United States officials, Zawahiri was killed in a CIA operation when he came out on the balcony of his safe house in Kabul on 31 July 2022 and was hit by "hellfire" missiles from a U.S. drone.
  • The drone strike is the first known US strike inside Afghanistan since the military pull out last August.
  • The Taliban which are in power in Afghanistan had a close relationship with al-Qaeda and it has described the U.S attack as a clear violation of international law.
  • U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the Taliban had "grossly violated" the Doha Agreement between the two sides by hosting and sheltering Zawahiri.

Who was Ayman al-Zawahiri

  • Ayman al-Zawahiri was the ideological brains behind al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda means the base in Arabic. 
  • He was an Egyptian doctor who was imprisoned in the 1980s for involvement in militant Islam and after his release he became involved in violent international jihadist movements.
  • He settled in Afghanistan and joined forces with a rich Saudi, Osama Bin Laden. Together they declared war on the US and organised the 11 September 2001 attacks on the United States.
  • He took over the leadership of al-Qaeda following the killing by US forces of Bin Laden in May 2011 in Pakistan. At that time Joe Biden was the Vice-President of the United States.
  • Before that, Zawahiri was often referred to as Bin Laden's right-hand man and the chief ideologue of al-Qaeda.
  • He was believed by some experts to have been the "operational brains" behind the 11 September 2001 attacks.

9/11 attack 

It was a coordinated four attack on the United States on 11 September 2009. It was the worst terrorist attack on the United States in its history.

19 militants belonging to al-Qaeda hijacked four domestic civilian airlines.

Two planes were deliberately crashed into the World Trade Center, Twin towers building in Manhattan, New York city, one crashed into the Pentagon, American Defence ministry headquarters and one in Pennsylvania after passengers overpowered the hijacked plane.

Around 3,000 people were killed including all the 19 hijackers.
