Bin Laden’s former aide returns to Afghanistan hours after US forces leave.
Just hours after American troops withdrew, Osama bin Laden’s former aide returned to his home in Afghanistan.
Amin ul-Haq, a major Al-Qaeda weaponry supplier and former aide to Osama bin Laden, has been seen returning to his home in Nangahar, Afghanistan. The footage of ul-Haq shows the ex-Al-Qaeda operative returning home with a van full of armed fighters.
Supporters can also be seen approaching ul-vehicle, Haq’s kissing his hand in certain cases.
Waving to his supporters, the ex-head of Al-security Qaeda’s branch Black Guard answered.
After US forces closed in on them at the Tora Bora caves, the returning Jihadi terrorist and the former Al-Qaeda head managed to flee.
Before crossing the border into Pakistan, they bribed Afghan tribesmen to get away from American special forces.
Despite his close contact with bin Laden, ul-Haq escaped a longer prison sentence after his arrest in 2008, according to reports that investigators were unable to establish hard proof linking him to the Saudi-born terrorist.
Bin Laden was finally apprehended by US special troops in Pakistan in 2011.
During Operation Neptune Spear, a late-night attack on bin Laden’s bunker, American forces shot and killed the Al-Qaeda leader.
According to the UN, ul-Haq was “participating in the financing, planning, supporting the preparation or perpetration of acts” for Al-Qaeda.
Ul-return Haq’s to Afghanistan comes after the United Kingdom cautioned the Taliban not to transform Afghanistan into a hotbed of Islamic terrorism.
The US suspended ul-assets Haq’s after Al-Qaeda attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon in September 2001.
“If the new regime in Kabul wants diplomatic recognition or to unlock the billions that are currently frozen, they must ensure safe passage for those who wish to leave the country, respect the rights of women and girls, and prevent Afghanistan from becoming an incubator for global terror, because that would be disastrous for Afghanistan,” Boris Johnson said.
Al-Qaeda continues to cultivate a healthy relationship with Al-Qaeda, according to a research by the Pentagon Office of Inspector General.
The Taliban “continued to retain its alliance with Al-Qaeda, providing safe refuge for the terrorist group in Afghanistan,” according to the report.
