A fresh development following the death of Osama bin Laden, the founder and head of the Islamist group Al-Qaeda, has emerged. This is just as his son, Hamza, is reportedly seeking to avenge his father’s death and is poised to become the new leader of Islamist group, Al Qaeda. Hamza who is about 28 years old has been named as a ‘specially designated global terrorist’ by the U.S., as he has recorded four audio messages in the last two years, aimed at the United States, US. Osama Bin Laden’s son threatens to revenge father’s death.
A former Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI agent, Ali Soufan, told CBS News in an interview. According to him, personal letters discovered during the raid that killed bin Laden show that Hamza, is set on avenging his father’s death.
Soufan said of Bin Laden son: “He tells him that he remembers ‘every look, every smile you gave me, every word you told me’. Hamza wrote that he considers himself to be forged in steel and his path to become the leader of the terrorist organisation was created years ago when he was used as a propaganda tool in bin Laden’s videos. He was seen sometimes holding a gun and he has even started to sound like his father.”

Speaking further, the FBI agent said: “His recent message that came out, he delivered the speech as if it’s his father, using sentences, terminology that was used by Osama bin Laden. He’s basically saying, ‘American people, we’re coming and you’re going to feel it. And we’re going to take revenge for what you did to my father. Iraq, Afghanistan.’ The whole thing was about vengeance.”
Recall that Osama bin Laden was fatally shot in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, shortly after 1:00 am PKT. The raid on bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, was launched from Afghanistan. U.S. military officials said that after the raid, U.S. forces took bin Laden’s body to Afghanistan for identification, then buried him at sea within 24 hours of his death in accordance with Islamic tradition…as coined from Wikipedia.
