Taliban: We’re investigating US claim of killing al Qaeda leader

The Taliban are researching a US “guarantee” that al Qaeda pioneer Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Kabul, a Taliban official said on Thursday, demonstrating the gathering’s administration didn’t know about his presence there.

The United States killed Zawahiri with a rocket terminated from a robot while he remained on a gallery at his Kabul hideaway on Sunday, U.S. authorities said, in the greatest disaster for the aggressors since Osama container Laden was shot dead over 10 years prior.

“The public authority and the authority didn’t know about the thing is being guaranteed, nor any follow there,” Suhail Shaheen, the assigned Taliban delegate to the United Nations, who is situated in Doha, told writers in a message.

“Examination is in progress now to learn about the veracity of the case,” he said, adding that the consequences of the examination would be shared freely.

Top Taliban pioneers have been having extensive conversations about how to answer the U.S. drone strike, three sources in the gathering said.

How the Taliban respond could have huge repercussions as the gathering looks for worldwide authenticity and admittance to billions of dollars in frozen reserves, following their loss of a U.S.- supported government a year prior.

Zawahiri, an Egyptian specialist, was very much familiar in the Sept. 11, 2001, assaults on the United States and was one of the world’s most needed men.

His passing in Kabul brings up issues about whether he got safe-haven from the Taliban, who had guaranteed the United States as a component of a 2020 settlement on the withdrawal of U.S.- drove powers that they wouldn’t hold onto other assailant gatherings.

Shaheen said the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan – the name the Taliban use for the nation and their administration – was focused on the understanding, endorsed in the Qatari capital, Doha.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the Taliban had “terribly abused” the arrangement by facilitating and protecting Zawahiri.
