United States President Joseph Biden said the United States killed al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan.

He spoke about this in a video message, which was broadcast on the website of the White House.

According to the President, this happened over the weekend.

“Justice has won and this terrorist leader is no more,” he said.

Biden said intelligence had located the al-Zawahiri family in Kabul earlier this year and stressed that no civilians or members of the terrorist’s family had been killed. Al-Zawahiri is known to have helped coordinate the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States that killed thousands of people.

Earlier, UNIAN already reported that the media, citing their own sources, announced the CIA operation. Intelligence agencies carried out a drone attack using two Hellfire missiles in Kabul and killed al-Zawahiri.
