In an article titled "My Story with Al-'Awlaki" in Issue IX of Inspire, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's (AQAP) English-language magazine, author Sheikh Harith Al-Nadari, aka Muhammad Al-Murshidi, told of his acquaintance with the late Yemeni-American cleric and senior Al-Qaeda figure Sheikh Anwar Al-'Awlaki, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in September 2011. Of particular note is the claim by Al-Nadari, whom Inspire describes as "the speaker of [Al-Eman] University's masjid [mosque] in Sana'a," that following Al-'Awlaki's escape from an attempt on his life in a May 2011 U.S. drone strike, he predicted that the next attempt would likely succeed.
