According to the American authorities, Hamza bin Laden carried on the radial jihadist ambitions of his deceased father, who was the leader of Al-Qaeda, and devised the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

Hamza bin Laden published audio and video messages on the internet and called on his followers to launch attacks against the United States and their Western allies, according to the Department of Justice.

He also threatened attacks on the US in revenge for the murder of his father in May 2011 by SEAL Team 6 in a compound in Pakistan.

The last known public statement by Hamza bin Laden was released in 2018 by the media arm of Al-Qaeda calling for followers in Saudi Arabia to rebel against the monarchy.

The location of Hamza bin Laden, sometimes the & # 39; crown prince of the jihad & # 39; has been the subject of speculation for years with reports of him living in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran.

He is believed to have spent years with his mother in Iran, despite Al-Qaeda & # 39; s harsh allegations of the Shiite branch of Islam dominating the country.

Observers speculated that the Tehran administrative regime kept him under house arrest as a way to put pressure on rival Saudi Arabia and on Al-Qaeda, preventing the Sunni militants from attacking Iran.
