The son of Osama bin Laden has attacked Saudi Arabia‘s relationship with America in a new video as the Kingdom’s powerful Crown Prince tours the US.
Hamza bin Laden, who jihadis have hailed as the ‘heir’ to the leadership of al-Qaeda, also urged ‘our dear people in the Arabian Peninsula’ to rise up ‘against the criminal tyrants and rulers of the country.’
In the video, he encouraged people to ‘liberate the place of revelation from the Crusaders’ and repeated an al-Qaeda vow to ‘redistribute the riches of the country among the poor and the needy and the deserving’.
It comes as Saudi Arabia’s 32-year-old de-facto leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman continued his visit to the US and after Washington approved defense contracts with the Kingdom totalling more than $1billion.
Earlier this week the Crown Prince stoked tensions with Iran by saying Israelis were entitled to live peacefully on their own land.
