An al-Qaida-affiliated Internet site is cautioning Muslims to avoid being near planned targets of the terrorist group, reports Geostrategy-Direct, the global intelligence news service.
The Al-Battar Camp online magazine, stated in a June 29 posting that the measure was for Muslims’ safety.
By providing the warning, the group is revealing its plans for attacks against “Christian companies, airlines and oil companies,” according to a translation of the report.
The report, “A Warning to Muslims With Regard to Getting Close to Infidels and Oppressors,” was written by Sheikh Amir Ibn-Abdullah al-Amir.
It advises Muslims, “If you are working with our infidel enemies, beware. Leave their quarters to save your religion, first, as well as for your own safety, should the mujahadeen target these infidel companies that hold enmity toward the Muslims and play a role in the war against Muslim nations. Beware of being with these infidels in this situation, lest you become afflicted by what will befall them. Al-Qaida has already warned and explained that it will be targeting these companies, especially the airlines, the oil companies and others run by the Christians.”
U.S. intelligence officials said last week that terrorists are targeting transportation systems, including trains, ships and airlines as part of preparations for a major attack.
Likely methods include truck bombs or hijacked airliners.
