Hoeven Statement Following Death of al Qaeda Terrorist

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven issued the following statement following the announcement of the United States killing al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

“The death of Ayman al-Zawahiri is an important victory in our war against terrorism,” said Hoeven. “We remember the horrendous attacks on September 11, 2001, and are grateful for our servicemembers and their dedication and commitment to bringing the perpetrators to justice and making the world a safer place. This strike also reminds us that we must be vigilant in responding to terrorist threats that continue to emerge from Afghanistan following the withdrawal of the forces.”
