The senior Haqqani Taliban were aware of Zawahiri’s presence in the area. US officials said it was a clear violation of the Doha Agreement. The Taliban also tried to hide Zawahiri’s presence. The Taliban also took special care to ensure that no one reached their hideout. For this the location of his family members was also changed. However, the US has clarified that his family was neither targeted nor harmed in the attack. Not only this, America did not even inform the Taliban about this mission.
