Ayman Al-Zawahiri, Al-Qaeda Chief, was killed in a US drone Operation

From June 2011 until his passing in July 2022, Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri aka Ayman Al-Zawahiri, an Egyptian-born physician, and theologian, served as the terrorist organization Al- Qaeda’s commander.

Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a US drone strike.

President Joe Biden has revealed that the US murdered Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda, in an Afghani drone operation.

He was slain on Sunday during a CIA counterterrorism operation in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.

He was one of America’s “most sought terrorists” and they collaborated in the 9/11 attacks.

Zawahiri “created a path of murder and brutality against American civilians,” according to Mr. Biden.

“Since the United States delivered justice to bin Laden 11 years ago, Zawahiri has been a leader of al Qaeda,” Mr. Biden said. “From hiding, he co-ordinated al Qaeda’s branches and all around the world, including setting priorities for providing operational guidance and calling for and inspired attacks against US targets.”

“Now justice has been delivered and this terrorist leader is no more,” he added.

Al-Qaeda was led by Zawahiri after the death of Bin Laden in 2011.

The drone reportedly fired two missiles at Zawahiri as he was on the balcony of a safe home, according to officials.

Other members of the family were present, but they were unharmed, and they added that only Zawahiri was slain in the incident.

Al-Zawahiri was described as hailing from a “prosperous and renowned family that offers him a lineage established firmly in both religion and politics” by The New York Times in 2001. In the Saudi Arabian village of Zawahiri, which is situated in the Badr, the affluent family is connected to the Harbi tribe. Both of Al-Zawahiri parent’s hailed from affluent backgrounds.

In Kafr Ash Sheikh Dhawahri, Sharqia Governorate, Al-father, Zawahiri’s Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri, came from a big family of doctors and academics, one of whose grandfathers were Sheikh Muhammad al-Ahmadi al-Zawahiri (1887–1944), the 34th Grand Imam of al-Azhar.

Ayman Al-Zawahiri Career, What was his profession?

Surgeon Ayman al-Zawahiri practiced medicine. Al-Zawahiri visited Saudi Arabia in 1985 for the Hajj and stayed to work as a doctor in Jeddah for a full year. When his group amalgamated with bin Laden’s al-Qaeda, he apparently had surgical training and became bin Laden’s personal counselor and doctor. In 1986, he first encountered bin Laden in Jeddah.

Ayman al-Zawahiri visited Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan in 1981 and spent time there working in a Red Crescent clinic that cared for injured refugees. He made friends with Ahmed Khadr there, and the two of them spoke frequently about the importance of having an Islamic administration and the needs of the Afghan people.

Al-Zawahiri visited the United States in 1993 and spoke at a number of mosques in California using the alias Abdul Mu’iz. He did this to raise money for Afghan children who had been hurt by Soviet land mines, but he only succeeded in raising $2000.

Which school did he go to? What was his major?

Ayman al-Zawahiri was allegedly a bright young man. He was a scholar who enjoyed poetry and “hated” violent sports because he saw them as “inhumane.” Al-Zawahiri earned his medical degree from Cairo University in 1974 with a grade that is roughly equivalent to a “B” in the American grading scale: gayyid giddan.

Ayman Al-Zawahiri Wife, Was he married? Any children?

At least four marriages were consummated by Ayman al-Zawahiri. His wives are Umaima Hassan and Azza Ahmed Nowari. Al-Zawahiri wed Azza Ahmed Nowari, a philosophy student at Cairo University, in 1978. She was his first wife. They had a very traditional wedding at the Continental Hotel in Opera Square, complete with separate rooms for men and women, no music, pictures, or other forms of fun.

Azza seemed unaware that al-Zawahiri had allegedly been a jihadi emir (commander) for the previous ten years until many years later, when the United States attacked Afghanistan in the wake of the September 11 attacks in October 2001. One of Zawahiri’s four wives, Umaima Hassan, posted a message on the internet in June 2012 praising the part Muslim women had played in the Arab Spring.

Al-Zawahiri and his wife Azza had four daughters named Fatima (born in 1981), Umayma (born in 1983), Nabila (born in 1986), and Khadiga (born in 1987), as well as a son named Mohammed (also born in 1987; Khadiga’s twin), who was described as a “delicate, well-mannered boy” who was “the pet of his older sisters,” who was subject to bullying in a setting that was predominately male, and ten years after Mohammed was born, in 1997, Azza gave birth to their fifth child, Aisha, who was born with Down syndrome.

One of his Wife

After being waterboarded in February 2004, Abu Zubaydah said that Abu Turab Al-Urduni had wed one of al-daughters. Zawahiri’s One of Al-three Zawahiri’s surviving wives gave birth to a daughter named Nawwar in the first half of 2005.

After the September 11 attacks on the United States, Ayman al-first Zawahiri’s wife Azza and two of their six children, Mohammad and Aisha, were killed in an airstrike on Afghanistan by US forces in late December 2001. Azza was trapped beneath the rubble of a guesthouse roof following an American aerial strike of a Taliban-controlled structure at Gardez.

She “refused to be excavated” out of concern for her modesty since “men would see her face,” and the next day she passed away from her wounds. Mohammad, her son, was also brutally murdered there. While Afghan rescuers attempted to resuscitate Azza, her four-year-old Down syndrome daughter Aisha, who had not been injured by the bombing, perished from exposure in the chilly night.
