Al-Qa'ida Central's Media Outlet Releases New Video on "Martyrdom Operations" by Khost "CIA Destroyer" Dr. Humam al-Balawi (Abu Dujana al-Khurasani)

Al-Qa'ida Central's (Qaeda; AQC) media outlet, the Al-Sahab (The Clouds) Media Foundation, released a new video yesterday featuring the late Dr. Humam al-Balawi, who tricked the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Jordanian intelligence into thinking he had turned on transnational jihadi-takfiris before detonating a kamikaze explosives belt inside the U.S. military base in Khost, Afghanistan on December 30 and killing 7 CIA operatives and a Jordanian intelligence officer (who was also a member of the ruling Hashemite family). Al-Balawi is more commonly referred to by his nom de guerre, Abu Dujana (Dujanah) al-Khurasani (Khorasani), "the one from Khurasan," a region that encompasses parts of modern day Afghanistan and eastern Iran.

The video is entitled "The Martyrdom/Self-sacrificing Operations" العمليــــــات الاستشهاديـــــــة and is composed of a lecture by al-Balawi on this subject. The geography of the place where he is speaking to two masked men at either side of him is similar to that featured in the "martyrdom will" video released by Tehrik-i Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and a video interview released by Al-Sahab in late February. The video is from "the Martyr-Lion," according to the advertising GIF banner.
