US Defense Secretary Mark Esper confirmed on Thursday the killing of Hamza bin Laden, the son of the founder of Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, according to Sky News.

“This is what I understand”, Esper said in an interview with Fox News when asked if Hamza had died“.

US Defense Secretary added: “I have no details. If I have details, I am not sure how much I can share with them”, according to AFP.

US media reported in early August that Hamza had been killed in the last two years, in a US-led operation, citing US intelligence officials.

The killing of Hamza bin Laden has dealt a symbolic blow to Al-Qaeda, but it could have little practical impact on the militant jihadist network.

The death of Osama bin Laden’s favorite son ends jihadist hopes for a dynasty that leads what was once the world’s most famous terrorist group.

The younger Hamza, who is believed to be 30, was once preparing to oversee Al-Qaeda to steer the organization his father set up to a new generation.

US officials gave few details of his death, saying this took place in the first two years of Donald Trump’s administration. A White House source said the US evidence of the death was “very reliable”.
