Trump confirms killing of Osama’s son

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Donald Trump has confirmed the killing of Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza bin Laden in a US operation in the Afghanistaninfo-icon-Pakistaninfo-icon border area.

The confirmation came in a statement from the White House press office. However, it did not say when the operation was conducted.

Trump said: “The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives Al Qaeda of important leadership skills, but undermines operational activities of the group.”

He added Hamza bin Laden was responsible for planning and dealing with various terrorist groups.

In an interview last month, US Defence Secretary Mark Esper said it was his understanding that Hamza bin Laden was dead.
