Press reports say al-Qaeda leader wants to target “weak” Finns in Afghanistan - Helsingin Sanomat | Finland | Scoop.it
A leader of the hard-line Muslim organisation al-Qaeda organisation has called for attacks against Finnish forces serving in Afghanistan, according to a report published in a number of Finnish provincial newspapers.
Abu Sulaiman al-Nasser writes in a blog message that the Finnish forces are weak, they avoid confrontations, and they lack support on the home front for their mission.
According to the terrorist leader, such attacks could lead to the withdrawal of the Finnish forces, which he calls “crusaders”.
