Abu Hafs Al-Mauritani: If Al-Qaeda's Leadership Moves To The Arab World, This Would Be A New Stage


In an interview with the UAE-based Alaan TV, the former mufti of Al-Qaeda, Abu Hafs Al-Mauritani, analyzed the decline in the popularity of Al-Qaeda, attributes it to the void left by Bin Laden, the rise of rival organizations, and infighting between the various Jihadi groups. Abu Hafs said that it was premature to talk about replacing Ayman Al-Zawahiri as the leader of Al-Qaeda, but added that if the leadership were to move from Pakistan and Afghanistan "to the center of action, to the heart of the Arab world," this could spell a new stage in the history of Al-Qaeda. The interview aired on June 22.
