Islamabad, Feb 10 (IANS) The Al Qaeda has warned India of “Mumbai style attacks” if it tries to attack Pakistan, reports BBC News.
Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, said to be the Al Qaeda’s military commander in Afghanistan and believed to have been killed in a US drone strike in August 2008, warned in a video in Arabic sent to the BBC in Islamabad that India “will have to pay a heavy price if it tried to attack Pakistan”.
Yazid says: “The Mujahideen will send your armies into the ground, like they did to the Russians in Afghanistan.”
Yazid, who is said to be ranked behind Ayman Al Zawahiri in the organisation, also called upon the people of Pakistan to rise and overthrow the present government and president, BBC reported.
He had last year claimed that Al Qaeda was responsible for the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.
