Hamza the son of Osama bin Laden has promised to take revenge against the United States for the assassination of his father.
The son of the late terrorist took to social media in a 21-minute rant titled "We are all Osama”, vowed to continue with al-Qaeda’s work. He also said that the United States will be targeted in terror attacks similar to 9/11. The footage was released by Al-Qaeda.
Bin laden said: "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 Sheikh Osama, may Allah have mercy on him, it is not revenge for Osama the person but it is revenge for those who defended Islam."
His father, former Al-Qaeda leader, who had been the world's most wanted man since the 9/11 terror attacks on America in 2001 was tracked down to a compound in Abbottobad, Pakistan, and killed on May 2, 2011 in a raid by US special forces.
Hamza, now in his mid-20s, was at his father’s side in Afghanistan before the 9/11 attacks and spent time with him in Pakistan after the US-led invasion pushed much of al-Qaida’s senior leadership there.
Introduced by the organisation’s new chief Ayman al-Zawahiri in an audio message last year, Hamza provides a younger voice for the group whose ageing leaders have struggled to inspire militants around the world galvanized by Islamic State.
