U.S. intelligence says that Osama bin Laden’s son and a potential leader of al-Qaeda, Hamza bin Laden, is dead. In February the State Dept. offered up to $1M for information regarding the location of Hamza bin Laden. Officials would not provide details of where or when Hamza bin Laden died or if the U.S. played a role in his death.
When President Trump was asked by reporters on Wednesday whether the U.S. had intelligence that Hamza is dead, President Donald Trump said, “I don’t want to comment on that.”
In March Saudi Arabia revoked the citizenship of Hamza bin Laden just after the U.S. had offered $1M bounty. Several years the radical had proposed terror attacks on Jews and Americans across the world. “Know that inflicting punishment on Jews and crusaders where you are present is more vexing and severe for the enemy.”
Hamza bin Laden threatened revenge against the U.S. for his father’s killing several years ago. That plan has failed.
