IN A video posted by a branch of Al-Qaeda on January 7, in which a former resident of Melilla who is known to have become a jihadist is featured, specific threats of terrorism are made to the cities of Madrid, Naples and Rome.
The jihadist who identifies himself as a Mujahedeen has been identified as Abu al-Nur al-Andalusi and a number of his family have previously been arrested by the Spanish police because of their radical behaviour.
This video which apparently shows acts of terrorism in Africa shows the Spanish jihadist a number of times and he says in Arabic “Today they are in our land, the land of Islam, but with God’s permission will come a day that we get to hit them on their land, in Naples, Rome, Madrid, explosions everywhere with God’s permission.”
Abu al-Nur al-Andalusi has appeared in a previous video in 2015 and has been known to allude to the fact that Andalucia is, and should be, Islamic land, hence his adoption of the name al-Andalusi.
