The United States on Thursday announced a reward of US$ 1 million for information on Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s son.
Osama’s son Hamza bin Laden is seen as an emerging face of terror. He sometimes is dubbed as the “crown prince of jihad,” there are reports of him living in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria or Iran.
According the US State department Hamza bin Laden is around 30 years, and has threatened attacks against the United States after his father was killed by US forces in Abbottabad in 2011 .
US intelligence agencies see Hamza bin Laden as successor to his father to mantle global terrorism as ISIS is down to the last silver lands in Syria.
In 2015, an audio clip of bin Laden urged extremists forces to unite to ‘liberate Palestine’.
After the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011, his three wives were allowed to return to Saudi Arabia. Disputed reports claim that Hamza bin Laden believed to have spent years along with his mother in Iran.
Observers say that the clerical regime in Tehran kept him under house arrest as a way to maintain pressure on rival Saudi Arabia as well as on Al-Qaeda.
Hamza’s younger brother told the guardian last year that Hamza’s whereabouts were disputed, but they believe he’s somewhere in Afghanistan.
Hamza bin Laden married the daughter of Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker in Al-Qaeda’s September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States that killed 3,000 people.
