    The terrorist organization Al Qaeda has published this Sunday a book written by a leader of the group with details on the preparation of the attacks of September 11, 2001 against the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, 21 years after this action.

    The 250-page text would be the work of Abu Mohamed al Masri, a senior official of the jihadist organization who died in 2020 in Iran. Al Masri relates that the attacks began to be prepared when they managed to settle in Afghanistan, in 1996, and that they sought to drag the United States into a long war of attrition.

    The idea arose when an Egyptian pilot planned to crash a civilian plane with thousands of liters of fuel against “an important and symbolic American building,” explains the book, now published by Al Qaeda’s communication section, As Sahab.

    Thus, some militiamen underwent special combat training in 1998 and then enrolled in flight schools around the world.

    Finally, on September 11, 2001, Al Qaeda militiamen hijacked four civilian planes in different parts of the United States.

    Two of them crashed into each of the Twin Towers in New York, another crashed into the Pentagon, headquarters of the Department of Defense, and the last one crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers subdued the hijackers to prevent a new attack. .

    These attacks triggered the invasion of Afghanistan, and what the United States has called the “war on terror.” Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden was killed in a US military operation in Pakistan in 2011 and his successor, Ayman al Zawahiri, was killed on July 31 in a US drone strike in Kabul, the Afghan capital.
