In addition to Kashmir, al Qaeda has demanded the “liberation” of territories such as Palestine, the Levant, Somalia and Yemen. “O Allah, liberate all Islamic territories, including the Levant, Somalia, Yemen and Kashmir, from the enemies of Islam. O Allah, grant freedom to Muslim prisoners all over the world.” The terrorist organization wrote on Facebook. Al-Qaeda’s message in Afghanistan praises the “Islamic community allowed by Allah.”
