The US authorities will pay a fee of up to $ 1 million for information about the whereabouts of Hamza bin Laden, whom they consider one of the leaders of the terrorist organization “al-Qaeda”, according to the state Department website.
“Since at least August 2015, he has been distributing audio and video messages on the Internet, urging his followers to attack the United States and its Western allies,” the state Department said.
In particular, Hamza bin Laden threatened to avenge the death of his father, who was killed by the us military, the US foreign Ministry said.
In 2017, the US imposed sanctions against Hamza bin Laden. This decision in Washington was explained by the fact that his actions could threaten the security of the country. According to the state Department, Hamza officially joined al-Qaeda in 2015, a year later he called for a war against the United States and its allies.
Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when the militants managed to capture four passenger aircraft and ram two towers of the world trade center in New York, killing 2,977 people. Osama bin Laden, the leader of a terrorist organization, was liquidated by the us intelligence services in 2011.
