Donald Trump confirms death of Osama bin Laden's son Hamza

US President Donald Trump on Saturday confirmed the death of Hamza bin Laden, the son of Osama bin Laden who had emerged as a high-profile member of al Qaeda. Trump said in a statement released by the White House that bin Laden was killed in a U.S. counterterrorism operation near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, though he did not provide an exact date for the death.

The statement said the loss of Hamza not only deprives al-Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but undermines important operational activities of the group. Hamza’s last known public statement was released by al-Qaeda’s media arm in 2018. In that message, he had threatened Saudi Arabia and called on the people of the Arabian Peninsula to revolt.
