Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, in a speech marking the 12th anniversary of 9/11, called for attacks on the United States and a boycott of the world’s largest economy.
A summary and translated English excerpts of the roughly 72-minute address was made available by the SITE Intelligence Group.
The speech was posted on jihadi forums a day after America held ceremonies in honor of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Zawahiri went on to say that these strikes could be “done by one brother or a few of the brothers” and that it was worth waiting for the right moment in order to mount a large-scale attack.
Zawahiri also referenced the twin bomb blasts at the Boston marathon in April that left three dead and scores wounded and maimed.
According to the SITE summary, Zawahiri also urged jihadists in war-torn Syria not to cooperate with non-Islamists.
