New statement from al-Qā’idah in the Arabian Peninsula: "Explanation to the Nation of Islam on the lies of Saudi Arabia"

NOTE: The below message from al-Qā’idah in the Arabian Peninsula is in response to the recent statements from Saudi Arabia, which have accused al-Qā’idah of planning on targeting individuals who plan to go on the annual Hajj, which takes place November 14-17 this year. AQAP emphatically denies such a claim: “We assure the Muslim nation, we are opposed to any criminal attack targeting the pilgrims.”
