Being a superpower nation, the United States has one of the best military forces. The forces are skillful enough to finish any assignment no matter how tough the job is. Making the best use of the existing technology, the military forces in the United States are drone technology. Drone technology has been giving fruitful outcomes to the US.

Yet again, the United States hit the bull's eye with the drone attack. As another big feather in the US cap, one of the dreaded terrorists Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed. He is the chief of the Islamic outfit Al Qaeda and he is believed to be the mastermind of the dreaded September 11, 2001 attacks.

The news was announced by none other than the President of the United States. Joe Biden addressed the countrymen in a televised address and said that Zawahiri was killed in a drone attack and his death would do justice to the families of victims who were killed in the terror attack.

The attack was planned in the capital city of Afghanistan, Kabul. Based on credible information, the US forces planned the drone attack and successfully killed the wanted terrorist.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said that the terrorist's residence in Afghanistan was spotted and when he was on the balcony, he was targeted and killed in the drone attack.

September 2011 is one of the dreaded attacks the United States ever witnessed. Osama Bin Laden who was the chief of the Islamic extremist network al-Qaeda planned the attacks and under his instructions, the members of the outfit finished the task. After he was killed in the drone attack, Ayman al-Zawahiri became the chief of the tarot organization.

Though Osama Bin Laden was the head of the organization, Ayman al-Zawahiri is also dubbed as one of the masterminds of the terror attacks. In two different attacks both the masterminds were killed and now the US administration led by President Joe Biden is feeling that the death of the chief of al-Qaeda would bring justice to the victims and their family members.

Talking about the September 11 attacks, the al-Qaeda network hijacked four airliners and crashed the hijacked planes into prominent buildings in the United States.
