Washington – In the event that Ayman al-Zawahiri, who took over the leadership of al-Qaeda after the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, was also killed, the US warned that attacks on American citizens around the world could occur at any moment. The U.S. states that U.S. citizens should be more cautious when traveling abroad and follow the instructions of security officials. US officials are urged to regularly watch local news and keep in touch with the nearest US embassy or consulate
America is on high alert. The country has given instructions to the citizens regarding this. Citizens have been asked to be careful when traveling abroad and to intervene according to the situation. On July 31, the United States confirmed that US forces entered Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, and killed al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri by firing a Hellfire missile at the house where he was hiding.
In such a scenario, Al Qaeda militants could attack American citizens in retaliation. The warning also states that terrorists are likely to adopt many methods like suicide attacks, bomb blasts and hijacking. Terrorist attacks happen suddenly without any warning. So you should be careful.
Zawahiri is said to have left Pakistan for Afghanistan soon after the Taliban came to power. One of the main reasons Zawahary was on America’s radar was a balcony habit. After realizing this, the American army came there with complete planning and conducted the operation secretly.
