Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (Yemen) has claimed responsibility for the failed parcel bomb attacks about one week ago and also stated it was behind the crash of a UPS cargo plane in Dubai on September 3th.
„We in the al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula were awaiting good news“, the statement by the group says, claiming responsibility for bombing a cargo airplane in Dubai, which was described by Dubai authorities as an accidental crash.
„We brought down one plane…and we did tried it again, sending one via UPS and the other via FedEx“- al-Qaeda writes, „To Obama: We planned three attacks against airplanes this year and we will continue strikes on America´s interests and the interests of America´s allies – Allah willing.“
The terror group even demands fellow Jihadis around the globe to follow the example of the mail bombs. „We intent to show this idea to our Mujahideen brother in the world and expand this application to include civil airplanes.“
