Al-Kaida Führer wird in US Drohnenangriff getötet

August 2, 2022 - Die Vereinigten Staaten konnten den hohen Al-Kaida Führer, Ayman al-Zawahiri, in einem Drohenangriff in Afghanistan töten. Al-Zawahiri soll Mit-Planer der Terrorangriffe in US vom 11. September 2001 gewesen sein.

Zawahiri was killed in a counter-terrorism operation carried out by the CIA in the Afghan capital Kabul on Sunday. It was the biggest blow to the militant group since its founder Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. special forces in 2011.

Zawahiri had been in hiding for years and the operation to locate and kill him was the result of “careful patient and persistent” work by the counter-terrorism and intelligence community, according to Reuters.
