The media men were yet to awaken from sleep of the night when a shocking news for entire terrorism world came. Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, who played central role in nine by eleven attacks and later created the terror group's regional affiliate in the Indian subcontinent, has been killed in a US precision strike in Afghanistan's capital Kabul, in the biggest blow to the global terror network since killing of its founder Osama bin Laden in 2011 in Pakistan. Ayman Al Jawahiri was a surgeon and eye specialist and he was from Egypt. In his family, there were many doctors and medical experts. But the man turned towards terrorism and reached to the state of becoming chief of Al Qaeda. He was arrested first time in nineteen eighty one when president of Egypt Anwar Sadat was assassinated and Jawahiri was grabbed as a suspect along with hundred others. He came into contact with Osama Bin Laden and both were masterminds of infamous attack on World Trade Centre in America. Osama was punished in two thousand eleven and Jawahiri was eliminated today in a drone attack. This is a really big blow to terrorism because the security system of terror network is considered to be extreme impenetrable. But drone came to a balcony of a safe house where Jawahiri was standing and only he was killed. The other family members of his remained safe. US will get many benefits of killing successfully Jawahiri as it can regain its ground which has lost due to retreat from Afghanistan leaving innocent citizens to Talibani atrocities. US has been constantly facing criticism due to retreat from Kabul. US may get some esteem back due to this brave act. Secondly, the psychological pressure on terror networks may get more robust now as they have known that if they have made a crime against US, they will not be left scot free. The terror network have become already weak in some years. The assassination of Jawahiri is a big blow for them. Al Qaeda had become inactive after Osama’s death and so some experts say the impact of Jawahiri’s death will not be considerably significant. But the news of Jawahiri’s death has come as a shock for terror networks and its psychological effect has given much relief to security agencies. The 71-year-old Egyptian surgeon, who had a US$ 25 million bounty on his head, was bin Laden's second-in-command during 9/11 attacks and took over as the head of al-Qaeda after his death. How he was killed has different stories behind the scenes. Pakistan may have fed US security agencies details about Jawahiri’s residence in Kabul. Otherwise they could not have reached to himself. Another possibility is that Taliban may have given confidential information about his activities in Kabul. Pakistan has been under financial stress and may have the deal with US. Even Taliban may have helped US in knowing Jawahiri’s stay. Possibilities are many but the reality is that terrorism has got a decisive shock now. Already terrorism has become weak now and the governments with the modern technology have been ready to crackdown on terrorists. The importance of Al Qaeda has been finished now with the death of its leader. It is not possible that another Osama Bin Laden or another Ayman Al Jawahiri may emerge again because the international situation has changed. What US president Jyo Biden has said in an interview to a news channel is absolutely true. He said, the United States continues to demonstrate our resolve and our capacity to defend the American people against those who seek to do us harm. We make it clear again tonight, that no matter how long it takes, no matter where you hide, if you are a threat to our people, the United States will find you and take you out. Every nation should become another US now.
