Trump confirms, Osama bin Laden’s son killed in counter-terror operation
US President Donald Trump on Saturday confirmed that Hamza bin Laden, the son of Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden, was killed in a counter-terrorism operation along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Though it is still not clear when he was killed. Trump in a statement said, “The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives al-Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father but undermines important operational activities of the group”. The 30-year-old is the 15th son of Osama bin Laden’s 20 children and was seen as the heir to the al-Qaeda terror network.
