Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a US drone strike.

The United States killed al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike in Afghanistan on Sunday, US President Joe Biden confirmed on Tuesday. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) conducted an operation on Ayman al-Zawahiri outside Kabul.

“(Ayman al-Zawahiri) carved a trail of murder and torture against American citizens. Justice has now been served and this terrorist leader is no more,” Biden said.

Al-Zawahiri was standing on the balcony of a safe house when a drone fired two missiles at him. Zawahiri’s other family members were present, but only the terror mastermind was killed in the mission.

The slain terrorist assumed the post of Al-Qaeda chief after the killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad in 2011. Both were responsible for planning the 9/11 attacks and are among America’s most wanted terrorists.
