Ayman al-Zawahiri calls to carry out suicide operations in America and the International Alliance

أيمن الظواهرى يدعو لتنفيذ عمليات انتحارية بأمريكا ودول التحالف الدولى

Ayman al Zawahiri: Al-Qaeda leader calls for lone wolf attacks working with Isis

دعا أيمن الظواهرى زعيم تنظيم القاعدة، المسلمين الذين يعيشون فى الدول المشاركة فى التحالف الدولى الذى يقوم بعمليات عسكرية فى العراق وسوريا، لتنفيذ هجمات انتحارية انتقامية، قائلاً: "فإنى أدعو كلَ مسلمٍ يستطيعُ أن ينكى فى دولِ التحالفِ الصليبى ألا يترددَ فى ذلك".

Al-Qaeda's leader has released an audio recording calling on "all Muslims" to carry out lone wolf attacks against the US and the West. Ayman al-Zawahiri also dismissed the Islamic State's (Isis) caliphate as illegitimate but said the two groups could work together.

وأضاف "الظواهرى"، فى تسجيل صوتى نشره تنظيم القاعدة أمس الأحد: "أننا يجبُ أن نركزَ الآن على نقلِ الحربِ لعقرِ دارِ ومدنِ ومرافقِ الغربِ الصليبى وعلى رأسِه أمريكا".

In the recording posted on Sunday 13 September, the group's leader called for violent acts to "harm the countries of the crusader coalition". He said: "I call on all Muslims who can harm the countries of the crusader coalition not to hesitate. We must now focus on moving the war to the heart of the homes and cities of the crusader West and specifically America."

He also encouraged young Muslims in the West to follow the lead of the Tsarnaev and Kouachi brothers, who carried out the Boston marathon bombings and Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris, respectively. It was not clear when the recording was made, but references to former Taliban leader Mullah Mohamed Omar as being alive suggest it is at least two months old. Omar's death was announced by Afghanistan's government in late July.

وتابع زعيم تنظيم القاعدة، "أن العديدَ من الشبابِ المسلمِ يتلهفون للنفيرِ لساحاتِ الجهادِ، ويتألمون من صورِ القتلِ والدمارِ فى أفغانستانَ ووزيرستانَ والعراقِ والشامِ وفِلسطينَ واليمنِ والصومالِ وكشميرَ والشيشانِ وسائرِ ديارِ المسلمين".

Zawahri repeated his condemnation of Isis, which broke away from Al-Qaeda after defying the Egyptian former doctor's orders by forming a caliphate in Syria and Iraq, and said the group made "big mistakes". But he also hinted there may still be room for co-operation between the two groups, urging greater unity between the terrorist groups.

وأضاف: "أحسبُ أن الكثيرَ منهم يتمنى عمليةً استشهاديةً لنصرةِ الدينِ، فلماذا لا يقومُ بها فى عقرِ دارِ الغربِ الصليبىِ، وفى مدنِه ومرافقِه ومراكزِه الاقتصاديةِ والصناعيةِ والماليةِ؟".

Al-Qaeda has found itself playing second fiddle to IS in the militant jihad world, with the former unable to match the latter's powerful social media presence. The audio recording is seen as Zawahri's attempt to perform a reboot to revive Al-Qaeda's relevance.

وقال، "إن العمليةَ الاستشهاديةَ لا تحتاجُ دائمًا لمتفجراتٍ، وحتى إن احتاجت لمتفجراتٍ فليس بالضرورةِ أن تكونَ متفجراتٍ تقليديةٍ، وهناك وسائلُ عديدةٌ غيرُ المتفجراتِ يمكنُ التفكيرُ فيها وتجربتُها والبحثُ عنها وابتكارُها".

The Egyptian, who replaced Osama Bin Laden, accused IS militants of sedition and insisted their most senior figure does not deserve to be 'caliph', or ruler. He said: "Despite the big mistakes [of IS], if I were in Iraq or Syria I would cooperate with them in killing the crusaders and secularists and Shi'ites, even though I don't recognise the legitimacy of their state, because the matter is bigger than that."
