EUA mata al líder de Al-Qaeda en un ataque con drones
August 2, 2022 - Estados Unidos mató al principal líder de al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, en un ataque con drones en Afganistán. Se cree que Al-Zawahiri fue uno de los que planearon los ataques terroristas del 11 de sseptiembre de 2001 enEstados Unidos.
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.
