One of the commanders of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb has promised that the Mujahideen of AQIM, Ansar al-Din, and the Movement of Tawhid and Jihad in West Africa will act with firmness and determination against any countries that might intervene in north Mali with the aim of overthrowing the Sharia system, writes UmmaNews.
Emir Mokhtar Belmokhtar has warned that any element hostile to Islam should not tempt to profit from the situation in north Mali by collaborating with the foreign aggressors who are eyeing the region.
In a statement released by Mauritania's private news agency Nouakchott Informations Emir Belmokhtar said:
"We will not stand by with our arms crossed and we will act as the situation demands with firmness and determination."
An ally of AQIM, Movement of Tawhid and Jihad in West Africa (MTJWA), promised that it strike in the rear of the aggressors who will dare to invade the country:
"Units of the Movement in a number of countries are ready to strike at the interests of the states that have declared their intention to enter into force "of the Economic Community of West African States" (ECOWAS), to launch a war against the Mujahideen in northern Mali", said Adnan Abu al-Walid al- Sahrawi, a spokesman for MTJWA. He added that the Mujahideen of al-Qaeda aims to provide all financial and military assistance to the Muslim youth that wants to raise the banner of Islam in Mali and around the world.
It is to be recalled that there are calls increasingly voiced recently in the international corridors to send in troops to Mali to overthrow the Shariah system and save pagan temples in the northern cities of the country destroyed by the Mujahideen.
The leaders of the regimes in West Africa gathered on Friday in Yamoussoukro, in order to urge the UN Security Council to adopt as soon as possible a resolution authorizing foreign intervention in Mali. Puppets are asking logistical support from the United States and France.
