US stays mum on Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza’s death
The United States claims that son of slain Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and himself a highly effective leader of al Qaeda Hamza bin Laden is dead. He carried an amount of $1 million bounty on his head for information leading ‘to the identification or location in any country’ of Hamza.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday declined to say anything on the issues saying, “I don’t want to comment on it.”
Sources reveal that Hamza was killed during the first two years of Trump administration (probably before February 2019) but did not disclose the time and place and also if the US had any role in it.
Further reported that the 30-year-old Hamza was with his father in Afghanistan before the Sept 11, 2001 attacks. When the Navy SEALS killed Osama bin Laden in 2011 in Abbottabad, Pakistan compound, Hamza was not found there. Letters seized from the compound suggested that Osama wanted Hamza to join him Abbottabad and groom him as a leader.
Hamza’s other two brothers were killed in 2009 and 2011. In March 2018, Hamza issued a statement threatening Saudi Arabia urging the people to revolt.
