Hamza Bin Laden, the son of the founder of the al-Qaeda terrorist network - Osama Bin Laden, was killed during an air strike.
This is claimed by US media, citing their intelligence sources. It is not clear exactly when and where Hamza died, but it is believed that this has happened in the last two years.
The Pentagon did not comment on the information.
Lockheed Martin Corp said on Tuesday it was working to establish alternate supply sources for F-35 parts in the United States after the Pentagon decided last week to remove Turkey from the fighter jet program.
On a post-earnings call, Lockheed's chief executive officer said the company would be able to remove Turkey from its manufacturing supply chain by March 2020.
Comments last week by Acting US Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, who drew parallels between Moscow's "unsafe and unprofessional" behavior following the near-collision between US and Russian warships in the Philippine Sea and Turkey's moves in the Eastern Mediterranean, pointed to something much more profound and significant than the usual occasional statements.
