A new report from the United Nations outlined the re-emerging threat from al Qaeda Wednesday, warning the terror network is poised to make a comeback under the leadership of Osama bin Laden’s son.
According to Fox News, the group is now led by Hamza bin Laden and is actively recruiting new members to carry out attacks in Europe, and North America.
The report found that Al Qaeda is still a global network showing resilience, and it is stronger than ISIS in places like Somalia, Yemen and South Asia
“Improved leadership and enhanced communication will probably increase the threat over time, as will any rise in the tendency, already visible in some regions, of ISIL supporters to join Al Qaeda,” writes the report.
The news comes just days after bin Laden reportedly married the daughter of Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker behind the September 11th terrorist attacks.
“The report found that Al Qaeda is still a global network showing resilience, and it is stronger than ISIS in places like Somalia, Yemen, and South Asia — and its leadership in Iran has grown more prominent,” writes Fox.
