Ayman al-Zawahri, who assisted Osama bin Laden in planning the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, was murdered by a US drone hit in Afghanistan this past weekend, ensuring al-survival Qaida's and growth in the years that followed. Only 11 months after American soldiers departed the nation, President Joe Biden announced the death of al-Zawahri on Monday. This marked a huge victory in the fight against terrorism.

Zawahiri, an Egyptian surgeon with a $25 million bounty on his head, assisted in planning the attacks of September 11, 2001, which resulted in the deaths of close to 3,000 people.
He was murdered outside the "safe home" he and other family members lived in Kabul. There were no other casualties.
