“Based on the aforementioned, your sons in Wilāyat Saynā’ reiterate their warning and threat to all those who support the murtadd army and police in any way, shape or form, whether by providing them with water, food, gasoline or building supplies, or assisting them with so much as carrying a stone to help them construct a building, or supporting them by providing a statement, an opinion, consultation or information which harms the Muslims in general and the mujāhidīn specifically. Those whom we determine to be involved with them in any of the aforementioned ways or in related means, should know that our swords are sharp and ready, and will not differentiate between a murtadd and those who support him. We will not have mercy or compassion towards those whose involvement with the murtaddīn is established.”
