In less then one week, Al-Qaida´s As-Sahab Media has released a second tape of their Libyan ideologue Sheikh Atiyyatullah, who is suspected of living in Pakistan´s remote North-Waziristan region. This time he produced a 10-minute audio message titled “Tribute To Our People in Libya”.
Most interesting about the latest message to Libya is the fact, that Al-Qaida presents what seems like the actual real name of Atiyyatullah, which is given as “Sheikh Jamal Ibrahim Isthawi al-Misrati”. The name indicates the Libyan al-Qaida figure is originally from Misrata, Libya´s third biggest city at the country´s North-Western coast – an information that was not publicly known or mentioned in any Jihadi Internet forum.
