The Al-Qaeda terrorist network has claimed that Pakistan has captured the wife of the network’s leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri.

Al-Qaeda issued a statement on Friday claiming that the Pakistani forces arrested the wife of al-Zawahiri and families of two other slain Al-Qaeda members.

The statement further added that the Pakistani forces arrested the individuals nearly a year ago.

Calling the Pakistani forces as ‘treacherous’, Al Qaeda added in its statement that the Pakistani forces captured Al-Zawahiri’s wife and others as they eft the former Taliban stronghold of Waziristan bordering Afghanistan about a year ago due to continuous airstrikes.

The statement also added “We … hold Pakistan’s government and its treacherous army and their American masters responsible for their criminal acts.”

The government of Pakistan and the security authorities of the country have not commented in this regard so far.
