Anyone with any information about Osama bin Laden’s son could receive up to $1 million for helping the State Department home in on a person it considers a growing threat, according to i24 News. Hamza bin Laden’s exact location hasn’t been pinned down over the years, but as he grows into a more prominent figure who may one day try filling the shoes his father left for him, the State Department needs any and all information of his whereabouts.

“Hamza bin Laden is the son of deceased former AQ leader Osama bin Laden and is emerging as a leader in the AQ franchise,” a State Department statement said. AQ stands for the terrorist organization al-Qaeda.
According to i24 News, the 30-year-old son of the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks has already set his sights on America as a way of striking back following his father’s death at the hands of top United States military personnel. The department worries that Hamza may want to step into the void left by his father, which would also time well with the decline of the Islamic State and its caliphate This potential vacuum could be filled with a whole new brand of extremism that would be led by Osama bin Laden’s son.
According to i24 News, “in 2015, bin Laden released an audio message urging jihadists in Syria to unite, claiming that the fight in the war-torn country paves the way to ‘liberating Palestine.’”
