Fear drives al-Shabaab to flee and abandon its bases

Members of the blood-sucking terror group al-Shabaab are fleeing and abandoning some of their bases after helicopters provided by the Somalia’s international allies were seen hovering over the villages the group is still controlling. Reports by locals indicate that the members fled due to fear of bombardment from the helicopters.

Members of the terror group have fled from bases in villages in Galgaduud region, Galmudug State after spotting the helicopters conducting an operation to wipe out al-Shabaab.

Consequently, members the blood-sucking group al-Shabaab have completely abandoned their bases in El-garas, Hamur, El-lahelay, Wamoley and El-kohle villages which are located south-east of Dusamareb, the administrative capital of Galgaduud region.

According to reports by locals, members of the group were so fearful of an attack that they ordered all residents to refrain from using their smartphones and not to approach their bases.

Meanwhile, several members of the terminable terrorist group al-Shabaab including high-ranking leaders were recently killed in Basra town in Middle Shabeelle following a well-coordinated military operation by the Somali National Army and its allies.

The high-ranking leader, whose name was identified as Maalim Dahir, was responsible for the group’s extremely unpleasant acts of terror the group conducts in Balad town and its surroundings.

Abdirahman Abu Salman, another high-ranking member of the blood-sucking group responsible for the looting activities carried out by the group against civilians was also killed in the same operation.

Two more members were also arrested in a separate operation conducted by the Somali National Army in Lower Shabeelle.

How Mogadishu is rising

Mogadishu is rising from the ashes of civil war waged by warlords and now by the blood-sucking group al-Shabaab which is opposed to any peace process for Somalia.

But now there is a renewed economic activity in the capital and its impact is easy to distinguish Mogadishu from how it looked a few years ago. Eye-catching office buildings and residential apartments are replacing bullet-riddled, dilapidated structures and the real estate industry is once again booming.

Once a no-go area for commercial airlines, Mogadishu is now receiving daily flights again. Restaurants, taxi companies, employment agencies, dry cleaners, gyms, real estate offices and fast food courts are springing up throughout the capital and in other cities in the country.

Ethiopian Airlines made its first landing in the Somali capital Mogadishu after 40 years absence. Flight, Et 377, landed at Aden Adde International Airport on 9 November 2018.

The Ethiopian Airlines flight is a precursor to Kenya Airways which is planning the launch daily direct flights between Nairobi and Mogadishu and the move is expected to ease travel between the two cities that are the focal points of business in the two countries and spur commercial activities. A few years ago, these developments were unthinkable. Security has been beefed up and sustained throughout the city.

Let’s continue to unite against al-Shabaab, the enemy of the people

Al-Shabaab is a group whose main objective is to twist Islamic laws to achieve monetary gain and, in the process, destroy the lives of innocent people. In its recruitment, it targets uneducated youth that are vulnerable and feel obliged to serve their religion.

The group indiscriminately attacks civilians in public places frequented by women children and the elderly like open air markets. The majority of Islamic scholars have long denounced the group since its inception saying all al-Shabaab activities have no place in Islam including non-violent ones.
It is unfortunate al-Shabaab is justifying all their activities and violence with religion. It is common sense that no religion condones or allows attacking the innocent.

The ultimate responsibility is in the Somali people’s hands and our unity will defeat this heartless hypocritical group that uses religion to justify unspeakable acts terror.
