In the video, AQAP official Abu al-Miqdad al-Kindi (AKA Khalid bin Umar Batarfi), who was freed from a Yemeni prison in April of 2015, condemned “America France and other kufr [disbeliever] nations” that “assist and make legislations to protect those who abuse Islam and the Prophets.” To that point, he stressed, “And as you put limits to freedom of expression and punish whomever goes against them, it is upon us to punish whoever transgresses out boundaries and sanctities.”

He then stated the need for lone wolf attacks in those nations:

And our words cannot give justice to their sacrifice and heroism, of which the later (operations), was the killing of many among those who insult Islam and the honorable Prophet. In the Indian sub-continent and the targeting of an offensive drawings exhibition in Texas, supported and protected by the American government. By the Grace of Allah, lone jihad and proven to be and always will prove to be a strategic weapon successfully hitting and penetrating the enemy’s fort.

He also stated of Chattanooga shooter Mohammad Abdulazeez:

And the latest operation of Muhammad Abdulaziz, which occurred in the heart of American soil, is a clear evidence of that. He penetrated the base killing and jinuring American marines in a blessed Jihadi operation. We ask Allah to accept him and raise his status among martyrs.

Batarfi advised that lone wolf attackers refer to AQAP’s English magazine, Inspire, for help with planning and preparation.
