Osama bin Laden's son Hamza killed in U.S. raid Trump says

"Hamza bin Laden, the high-ranking Al Qaeda member and son of Osama bin Laden, was killed in a United States counterterrorism operation in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region", Trump said in a brief statement issued by the White House. On 31 July 2019, The New York Times and other news organizations quoted unnamed American officials as saying that bin Laden was believed to have been killed in the first two years of the Trump administration.

The Pentagon and US Central Command, which oversees military operations in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, referred queries to the White House.

Hamza bin Laden is believed to have made his last public appearance in 2018. "The fact they haven't is highly unusual, given his status in the group".

Trump gave no further details about the operation to kill the younger bin Laden, and it is unclear when and where he was killed.

Experts had earlier suggested that Hamza had been hiding in either in remote mountainous areas of Afghanistan or Pakistan, but there was no official confirmation on his whereabouts.

The price on the head of Ayman Az-Zawahiri, the actual leader of al Qaeda, is $25 million. He also spent time with his father in Pakistan after the US -led invasion of Afghanistan pushed much of al Qaeda's senior leadership there, according to the Brookings Institution.

The State Department said Hamza was married to a daughter of Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, a senior Al-Qaeda leader indicted by a U.S. federal grand jury in 1998 for his role in the bombings that year of USA embassies in Tanzania and Kenya - attacks overseen by the senior Bin Laden.

Al Qaeda is a shadow of its former self, a ragged collection of dispersed groups with little in the way of coordination.

Al-Qaeda had yet to confirm or comment on the United States announcement.

He was named a "specially designated global terrorist" in January 2017, and he had released audio and video messages calling for attacks against the US and its allies. You see al-Qaida in Yemen.

"Moreover, while Hamza has not actually fought, he has been featured in al-Qa'ida propaganda from a very young age, in videos that depict him as having been very close to his father".

Documents recovered from the raid to kill Osama bin Laden, which included directions to aides on how to care for and educate his son, indicated plans to groom him for senior militant leadership. The never-before-seen video of Osama bin Laden's son and potential successor was released November 1, 2017, by the Central Intelligence Agency in a trove of material recovered during the May 2011 raid that killed the al-Qaeda leader at his compound in Pakistan.

In March 2010, Hamza and others left Iranian custody.
