The former Al Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden, was responsible for the 9-11 terror attack on Americans. His son, Hamza bin Laden, who was allegedly being groomed to be the possible leader of Al Qaeda, is now reportedly dead.
In 2016, Hamza bin Laden threatened:
“We will continue striking you and targeting you in your country and abroad in response to your oppression of the people of Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and the rest of the Muslim lands that did not survive your oppression.”
“As for the revenge by the Islamic nation for Sheik Osama, may Allah have mercy on him, it is not revenge for Osama the person, but it is revenge for those who defended Islam. We Are All Osama.”
The New York Post reports – The US has gathered intelligence that the al Qaeda leader’s son had died, NBC News reported, citing a trio of US officials.
The sources would not discuss details of where or when the younger bin Laden died or whether the US played a role in his demise, and President Trump declined comment at the White House.
“I don’t want to comment on it. I don’t want to comment on that,” he said.
Hamza bin Laden’s last known public statement, released by al Qaeda in 2018, included threats against Saudi Arabia and called on the people of the Arabian peninsula to revolt against their rulers.
In his mid-late 20’s, he called for “lone wolf” attacks on the United States, Jewish interests, NATO, and Russia. Al Qaeda was apparently grooming Hamza for a leadership role. “When he was a kid, he had a lot of charisma,” said the lead FBI 9-11 investigator.
Terror experts speculate that ISIS and Al Qaeda are joining forces, claiming the alliance it could possibly be a “lethal combination.
Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden in 2011 during a raid on his hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
When the Navy SEALS stormed the compound where Osama Bin Laden was hiding in Pakistan, Hamza was not present.
Letters were seized from the compound that suggested the top 9/11 plotter wanted his son to join him in Abbottabad so he could groom him as a leader.
