Another example of how technology has changed military operations in 21st century warfare was shown to the world yesterday.
Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri was killed by the US military using a drone. He was Osama Bin Laden’s right hand and was responsible for organizing the September 11 attacks. This statement was made by Joe Biden, the US President, at the White House.
At his Kabul home, a strike drone killed him. No one else was injured. The operation was conducted without the assistance of special forces and ground support personnel from nearby military bases.
A CIA drone carried out the strike. The strike was conducted at 6:18 AM on Sunday in Kabul. Al-Qaeda leader was on his balcony. It took several days for the target to be eliminated.
US President Joe Biden stated that he had given his final consent for the assassination Ayman al Zawahiri. He was still planning to attack the US and its allies.
Today, we reported that several countries are lined up to get a Turkish Bayraktar Drone.
