Chief of Al-Qaeda Al-Zawahiri thought he was close to the border with Afghanistan and Pakistan: UN report
The Friday report indicated that there are huge numbers of Al-Qaeda fighters and other foreign extremist forces in various districts of Afghanistan aligning with the Taliban. A substantial component of al-Qaeda leadership resides in both the territory bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan, including the enigmatic organization leader Aiman al-Zawahiri, who, per a United Nations report, "is undoubtedly alive but too fragile to speak."
"Aiman Muhammed Rabi al-Zawahiri, Al-Qaeda commander, is said to be somewhere on the Afghan-Pakistan border. Earlier death reports for ill-health were not confirmed. "One Member State indicates it may be alive, but too fragile to be propagandistic," the report added, not identifying the country. The research stated that Al-Qaeda works under the Taliban umbrella in the Indian Subcontinent in the provinces of Kandahar, Helmand, and Nimruz, in particular. "It is stated that the group includes largely Afghan, Pakistani and Bangladeshi, India and Myanmar citizens as well." It added Osama Mahmood, who is not named and succeeded late Asim Umar, is Al-existing Qaeda's rival in India's subcontinent.
The 12th report of the analytical support and sanctions monitoring team stated that "Member states have reported that a significant part of the leadership of Al-Qaeda is still based in border Afghanistan and Pakistan, where the core of the Al Quaeda is closely joined and works with Al-Kaeda in the Indian Subcontinent".
