AQAP Leader Batarfi Calls for Murder of Jews, Christians, UK, and US Citizens


Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Khalid Saeed Batarfi has called for Muslims around the world to kill Jews, Christians, UK and US citizens in response to the Israeli incursion into the Gaza Strip.

In a lengthy question and answers session with Epics Foundation, an AQAP media outlet, he also threatened that his group will strike the US as it did on September 11th, 2001. This is the first public message from the terrorist leader since October 7th, when Hamas launched its slaughter in Southern Israel.

Khalid Saeed Batarfi is a Saudi Arabian militant and the current emir of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. He oversaw the Yemen-based group’s media network and led jihadist fighters in their takeover of Yemen’s Abyan Governorate in 2011, where he was accorded the position of emir. He also reputedly carried out terrorist attacks in the Abyan and Hadhramaut governorates.
