Mujahideen Attacked The Enemy’s Bases In Mogadishu
Ash-Shabab Mujahideen in Somalia attacked three main
headquarters of the enemies, ie. "the transitional government" and the Ethiopian
forces in Somalia, in the capital, Mogadishu. The attacks were accomplished on
Thursday night, using hand grenades and machine guns. The Ethiopian forces
countered the attack using artilleries. Abdurrahim Ise Addo, spokesman for
Islamic Shariah Fighters said that 10 enemy forces were killed in the attack,
and he added that 2 Mujahideen were also martyred.
Earlier the Ash-Shabab Mujahideen had liberated several villages in Somalia
where they had forced the Ethiopian forces to withdraw from Mogadishu. Fighting
in Somalia began to rise after 9th of June when the UN forces and the Ethiopian
decided to form reconciliation and announced that a ceasefire had been achieved
between the so-called “Transitional Federal Government” (TFG) of Somalia and the
Alliance for Re-liberation of Somalia (ARS). However Ash-Shabab and the leader
of The Islamic Courts Union (ICU), Sheikh Hasan Dahir Aveis who is a member of
the ARS stated that the military unit of Ash-Shabab will carry on battling until
the last Ethiopian forces are leaving the country.
Meanwhile, in Afghanisten, Sheikh Abu Yahya Al Libi urges
establishment of Islamic State in Somalia, in a new video released by Al Sahab.
The Sheikh addressed the current situation in Somalia and the recent peace
negotiations between the rival parties there in a new video produced by al
Qaeda's media wing, Al Sahab and posted on mujahideen Internet forums Sunday
In the 19-minute tape, titled
Without Islam," Sheikh Abu Yahya Al Libi urges the Somali Mujahideen Youth
Movement to keep fighting against the Ethiopian forces, as well as against
Somali transitional government and all parties involved in talks with them.
Sheikh Abu Yahya Al Libi also called on the mujahideens in Somalia to fight any
forces brought in to replace the Ethiopian forces, such as AU peacekeeping
forces, and says the mujahideen should not recognize the authority or the
legitimacy of such organizations. Sheikh Abu Yahya Al Libi also eulogized
mujahideen commander Sheikh Adam Ayro, who was martyred in a U.S. airstrike on
his house in the central Somali town of Dusamareeb on May 1st.
Sheikh Abu Yahya Al Libi finished his statement by inciting the mujahideen to
establish an Islamic State in Somalia. "Do not accept anything less than an
independent Islamic State that does not recognize International legitimacy, nor
would it acknowledge man-made legislations," he said.
Al Qaeda has been paying increasing attention to the
conflict in Somalia. Sheikh Ayman al Zawahri, have made repeated references to
the conflict, portraying it as another battle between the West and Islam, and
voiced support for the Mujaheddin Youth Movement.
