Al-Qaeda preparing new attack in US “on scale of September 11”
“Al-Qaeda is preparing a new attack in the United States on the scale of September 11 after adopting a new operational structure which is impenetrable to US intelligence, according to a Saudi weekly.
An attack against America is inevitable,” Al-Majallah quotes the Islamic militant network’s newly-appointed spokesman Thabet bin Qais as saying in an e-mail to the paper.
Al-Qaeda has “carried out changes in its leadership and sidelined the September 11, 2001 team”, the paper quotes bin Qais as saying.
“Future missions have been entrusted to the new team, which is well protected against the US intelligence services. The old leadership does not know the names of any of its members.”
