The Jordanian doctor who killed seven CIA employees in a suicide attack in Afghanistan said all jihadists must attack US targets to avenge the killing of the Pakistani Taliban leader, according to a video that appeared posthumously Saturday on an Arabic news channel.
Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi appeared next to the new leader of the Pakistani Taliban, Hakimullah Mehsoud, and explained how the "emigrants" - Muslim jihadists from abroad - were given shelter by the Pakistani Taliban and so should exact revenge for US attacks.
In August, Baitullah Mehsoud, the supreme commander of the Pakistani Taliban was killed by a CIA missile strike.
"We will never forget the blood of our emir Baitullah Mehsoud, We will always demand revenge for him inside America and outside," al-Balawi said, addressing the "enemies of God" and Jordanian intelligence. "It is an obligation of the emigrants who were welcomed by the emir."
