Al Qaeda threatens to attack outside the battle field, if troops not withdrawn, and security authorities looking for three car bombs
Al Qaeda threatened to attack places outside the battle field if the government troops did not withdraw from the circumference of Zinjubar within ten days, said the top leader of Al Qaeda in Zinjubar on Wednesday.
" We, Ansar Shariah in the State of Abyan, would give the government an ultimatum of 10 days for withdrawing all the troops from the circumference of Zinjubar, and compensate the displaced persons," said Abu Hamzah Jalal Beledi, Emir Ansar Shariah in the State of Abyan, in a statement sent through SMS by an assistant of his called himself Abu Al Waleed.
" If the troops not withdrawn, we would attack outside the battle field, and we might have to implement the plan of the flooding river," said the top leader of Al Qaeda in Zinjubar.
Al Qaeda threat came only two days after the command of the troop units around Zinjubar gave an ultimatum of one week to Al Qaeda operatives to leave the city of Zinjubar otherwise the troops will storm the city.
The threats of Al Qaeda to strike outside the battle field came also one day after security authorities said they had intelligence that three car bombs are somewhere ready to implement suicide attacks against Yemeni government and Western interests in Yemen.
The security authorities are searching for the three car bombs almost everywhere, the security sources said to official media.
