Al-Qaeda chief, Ayman al-Zawahiri threatened the US saying that attacks like 9/11 will be repeated a “thousand times”, in a video marking the 15th anniversary of the horrific attack, The Indian Express reported.

In the video which was posted on YouTube, Zawahiri blamed America’s “crimes against us” for the 9/11 attacks, citing Washington’s policies towards Arab and Muslim countries, its “occupation” of their lands, it’s support for their “corrupt government”.

The events of 9/11 were a direct result of your crimes against us, your crimes in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Mali, Somalia, Yemen, Islamic Maghreb, and Egypt [and] the result of your occupation of Muslim lands, theft of their resources, and support for the murderous corrupt criminals, who rule over them… As long as your crimes continue, the events of 9/11 will be repeated thousands of times, by the will of Allah. And we will follow you — if you don’t cease your aggression [against us] — until the Day of Judgment.

He said that the jihadi movement is awakening and US remains vulnerable to small, home-grown attacks.
