Bin Laden blasts Israel in audio tape

Text size Aa Aa

An audio tape believed to be of Osama bin Laden has been released in which the al-Qaeda leader has renewed threats against Israel as the nation marks its 60th birthday. He says the fight against Israel is at the heart of Muslims’ battle with the West, and that “not one inch” of Palestine would be given up “as long as there was one true Muslim left on earth”.

It confirms bin Laden’s reorientation around the Palestinian’s struggle, after initially launching al-Qaeda as a movement to expel US troops from Saudi Arabia.
