Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has appeared in a video prepared to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the death of his predecessor, Osama bin Laden.
Al-Zawahiri said in the video that “US weakness” was the reason his ally Ukraine became a “prey” of the Russian military operation.
Al-Zawahiri’s 27-minute speech was delivered on Friday, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors extremist activity. The leader of the organization appeared seated at a desk with books and a rifle.
Al-Zawahiri said the United States is “in a state of weakness and decline “, referring to the impact of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on them.
Al-Zawahiri said: “Here is the United States after the defeat in Iraq and Afghanistan, after the economic disasters caused by the 9/11 invasions, after the Corona pandemic, and after their ally left Ukraine in prey to the Russians “.
Bin Laden was killed in 2011 in a raid by American forces in a complex where he lived in Pakistan.
The whereabouts of al-Zawahiri, wanted by the Federal Bureau, are unknown of United States Investigation. There is a $ 25 million reward for information leading to his arrest.
