US President Donald Trump confirmed that Osama bin Laden Hamza’s son was killed in a U.S. special operation. His statement is quoted by RIA Novosti.
“The loss of Khamza bin Laden will not only deprive Al Qaeda of important leadership and symbolic ties with his father, but also undermine the important operational actions of the group,” Trump said. According to him, Hamza bin Laden was responsible for planning and relations with various terrorist groups.
For the first time, NBC News wrote about the death of the son of the founder of Al-Qaeda (banned in the Russian Federation) . Since July, US authorities have declined to comment on this information.
In February 2019, the State Department announced a million dollar reward for information on the whereabouts of Hamza bin Laden.
