According to recent publication, the branch of Al-Qaeda in yemen has threatened more attacks against the West after 17 people were killed by gunmen in the Charlie Hebdo offices and at a Jewish grocery store.
The branch of al-Qaeda in Yemen claimed the group directed the attack on the Charlie Hebdo Paris offices, telling pressmen. “The leadership of AQAP (al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) directed the operations and they have chosen their target carefully.”
The member told AP the attack was in line with warnings from the late al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden about “the consequences of the persistence in the blasphemy against Muslim sanctities”.
On Friday night, AQAP sharia official Harith al Nadhari released a video message warning the West of fresh attacks.
He said: “It is better for you to stop your aggression against the Muslims, so perhaps you will live safely.
“If you refuse but to wage war, then wait for the glad tiding.”
