Hamza bin Laden, who is now reportedly 23 or 24 years old, has given voice as a public figure for the first time ever. An audio recording believed to belong to Osama Bin Laden’s youngest son has been posted on Twitter.
The message is believed to have been recorded this spring, before the Muslim celebration of Ramadan in June, but has been released only now. This is the first time that Hamza Bin Laden is presented as an official member of Al Qaeda militant group.
According to Rita Katz, director of SITE Intelligence Group, who narrated Hamza’s message in a tweet, “Hamza Bin Laden calls to move the war from Kabul, Gaza & Baghdad, to Washington, London, Paris and Tel Aviv,” urging Al Qaeda’s adherents that doing so is their “duty.”
