Hamza bin Laden was regarded as an eventual heir to the leadership of Al Qaeda and had repeatedly threatened to attack the United States. He was also designated a global terrorist in January 2017.

The New York Times quoted an American official that the U.S. government had a role in the operation that killed the younger bin Laden.

The report adds that Hamza bin Laden was killed before the State Department announced a $1 million US dollar reward for information about his whereabouts in February this year.
