Whoever pays al-Shabaab is equally guilty of the group’s heinous crimes, say scholars

Somali Islamic scholars have warned business and individuals to refrain from giving al-Shabaab illegal Zakat, adding that doing so is equivalent to taking part in the heinous crimes the group is committing against civilians.

Deputy leader of the Somali Islamic Association, Sheikh Noor Barud Gurhan, urged business owners to refuse giving illegal extortion money to the group and to obey orders from the murderous group.

According to the scholar, paying taxes to the blood-lust group is equivalent to taking part in the spilling of the blood of innocent civilians.

“Whoever pays al-Shabaab due to fear of reprisals from the group is breaking the moral code of Islam and will be judged by God on the day of judgement,” he said.

The organisations leader, Sheikh Bashir Ahmed Salat also urged radicalized youth to refrain from spilling blood of the innocent and urged them to repent.

95 new SNA cadets report for duty in Mogadishu


Ninety five (95) fresh cadets from the Somali National Army have begun reporting for duty in Mogadishu after a year-long training in Uganda. The officers were trained intensively on military strategies, leadership and specialised training to combat terrorism.

Meanwhile, dozens of fresh al-Shabaab recruits were reportedly killed after forces allied with the Somali National Army conducted an airstrike in Jamame town, Lower Shabelle. Witnesses in Jamame town have confirmed the decimation.

The recruits that were killed were attending graduation after receiving training in the region and are also believed to belong to a unit that carries out indiscriminate attacks and suicide bombings. Airstrikes, ground assaults and intelligence-steered operations have been decapitating the terror organization and it has lost swathes of territories it previously controlled.
Operations like this are continuing across Somalia and the group’s days are numbered.
