It’s doubly official: Trump confirms killing of al-Qaeda Heir Hamza Bin Laden
(IraqiNews) United States President Donald Trump
...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party...
confirmed on Saturday that Hamza bin Laden, the son of the later al-Qaeda founder the late Osama bin Laden
...... who was laid out deader than a mackerel, right next to the mackerel......
, was killed in an operation by the anti-terrorism forces, on the Afghanistan-Pakistain border.

In a statement issed by the White House, Trump said, "The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives al-Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but undermines important operational activities of the group."

It is noteworthy that in 31 July 2019, U.S. officials announced that Hamza Bin Laden, the son of the later Leader and Founder of al-Qaeda terrorist organization, was killed in U.S. anti-terrorism operation.
Rudaw adds:
The State Department said Hamza was married to a daughter of Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, a senior Al-Qaeda leader indicted by a US federal grand jury in 1998 for his role in the bombings that year of US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya -- attacks overseen by the senior Bin Laden.

I'd say if the immediate family of every terrorist was killed, we'd have far fewer terrorists. But we can't even work up the civilizational confidence to waterboard terrorists for information, so that's not happening.
