Considered as the favourite son of bin Laden, Hamza bin Laden is walking in his father’s footsteps.
Indeed, he invited all the faithful Muslims to join the “Jihad” in Syria. Since his childhood, Hamza has shown his willingness to follow in the footsteps of his father. In several recordings, he calls the jihadists to unity and to carry out attacks against the West.
The Syrian branch of Al Qaeda, which intervened in the civil war in 2013, had even said it renounced its attachment to the jihadist group and had even chosen a new name.
In his message broadcast by several jihadist sites, Hamza bin Laden appeals to his “Muslim brothers from Indonesia in the Maghreb to join the jihad to stop the aggression of the Crusaders and the Rafida (a derogatory term designating Shia Muslims) “. “Jihadists need so much help from all Muslims to continue the battle,” he adds, without referring to any group.
Previously, in 2016, Hamza bin Laden also called “the Islamic nation to focus on jihad in Syria and on the unification of the ranks of the mujahideen.” It seems that the young man is preparing to take over and lead the Islamist group Al Qaeda. Currently, the movement is led by the Egyptian Ayman al-Zawahiri who succeeded Osama bin Laden.
It is the Egyptian Ayman al-Zawahiri who currently runs the network, after succeeding Osama bin Laden. In January 2017, Bin Laden’s heir was even blacklisted by the United States as “international terrorists”. Again, he calls on the world to avenge his father and attack “American, French and Israeli interests in Washington, Paris and Tel Aviv” and urged the Saudis to “overthrow” the regime of Ryad.
