NOTE: It appears that al-Qā’idah is trying to personalize ‘Aṭīyyatullah’s message by releasing this statement with his actual name Shaykh Jamāl Ibrāhīm Ishtīwī al-Miṣrāti showing that he is from Miṣrātah a city in northwest Libya. Miṣrātah is the third largest city in Libya and is currently being occupied by the Libyan regime.
Earlier this week, ‘Aṭīyyatullah also came out with a video titled “Maximizing the Sanctity of Muslim Blood.” And three weeks ago, ‘Aṭīyyatullah also released a booklet titled “The Popular Revolution and the Fall of the Corrupt Arab System.” Here are some other recent al-Qā’idah releases related to Libya:
- Video message from Abū Muṣ’ab ‘Abd al-Wadūd, Amīr of al-Qā’idah in the Islamic Maghreb: “Support for the Free, Descendants of ‘Umar al-Mukhtār”
- Video message from Abū Yaḥyā al-Lībī: “To Our People in Libya”
- Statement from al-Qā’idah in the Islamic Maghreb: “Support and Backing for the [Libyan] Revolution of our Family, the Free, Descendants of ‘Umar al-Mukhtār”
