Al-Qaeda- US on Al-Qaeda Threat: Al Qaeda will be able to attack America from Afghanistan in one or two years at most. Bloomberg cited two US intelligence agencies that made this claim. According to the report, this terrorist organization only started its activities in Afghanistan after the capture of the Taliban and if that is any indication, then the terrorist group will become very strong in a year or two.
This claim was made by the US intelligence agency at a time when a video of Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri surfaced. Previously, it had been reported about al-Zawahiri that he was dead. But on the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attack on America, Al-Qaeda released this video, in which Zawahiri was seen.
After the complete withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and the occupation of the Taliban, security experts believe that terrorist activity will increase in the region. However, the Taliban’s interim government insisted it would not allow its territory to be used for terrorist activities. By the way, there are a lot of these terrorists in the Taliban government, who have been banned by the UN.
“Current estimates suggest that al Qaeda could develop its ability to threaten the United States in at least one to two years,” Defense Intelligence Agency director Lt. Gen. Scott Barrier said. In doing so, the Pentagon declared that it would have capabilities “on the horizon” to defend the country. The United States carried out two strikes in Afghanistan following the bombing of Kabul airport on August 26. Barrier said: We are considering ways to regain access to Afghanistan.
