Osama bin Laden’s son has just threatened revenge against the U.S.

The son of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has threatened to seek revenge against the United States for assassinating his father.

As reported by Reuters, Hamza bin Laden made the threats in a 21-minute speech entitled "We Are All Osama.”

The video was discovered by SITE Intelligence Group, an organisation that tracks white supremacist and jihadi organisations online.

"We will continue striking you and targeting you in your country and abroad in response to your oppression of the people of Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and the rest of the Muslim lands that did not survive your oppression," said Hamza.

"As for the revenge by the Islamic nation for Sheikh Osama, may Allah have mercy on him, it is not revenge for Osama the person but it is revenge for those who defended Islam,” he said.

Bin Laden was killed in a Pakistani hideout in 2011.

Now in his mid-twenties, Hamza is thought to be providing a new face for al Qaeda.

Bruce Riedel of Brookings describes him as “an articulate and dangerous enemy.”
