Zawahiri was hiding with his family in a house in Kabul. The President said that justice was done and this terrorist was killed. The 71-year-old Egyptian surgeon Zawahiri had a $25 million bounty.

shot in the balcony
US President Joe Biden said in an address at the White House on Monday evening, I had given permission for that attack, so that it could be ended forever. According to officials, Zawahiri was in the balcony of a house when two missiles were fired at him from the drone. The rest of his family members were also present there, but they have not suffered any injuries, only Zawahiri has been killed. Biden said, he had a key role in the planning of the 9/11 attacks … the deadliest attack on American soil killed 2,977 people. For decades he plotted several attacks against Americans.
Zawahiri became the kingpin after bin Laden
Al-Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden co-planned the 9/11 attacks on America. Osama bin-Laden was killed by the US in 2011 in an operation in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Zawahiri became the leader of al-Qaeda after Osama bin-Laden was killed in a US action. Bin Laden was also killed in 2011 in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Bin Laden had also launched a big campaign to find him. As soon as information about his hiding in Abbottabad was received, the then President Barack Obama had asked him to make a plan to kill him.
US soldiers took bin Laden’s body with him
US troops had previously confirmed bin Laden’s identity. After this the commandos of Navy Seals were prepared. He was later sent by helicopter to attack the Abbottabad house where bin Laden was hiding in the dark of night. American soldiers attacked bin Laden and killed him in a very short time and took his body with them. Later America put him in the sea. However, there is a difference between the missions carried out against Zawahiri and bin Laden, that the soldiers also got ground support in bin Laden’s mission. But in Zawahiri’s case only drones were used. It was controlled from Shamsi airbase in Balochistan, 839 km from Kabul.
