The Hybrid Terrorist OrganisationApril 7, 2021
The terrorist organization Islamic State (IS) seized the Palma region of Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado district in late March 2021. The organization, which first took over the city of Mocimbao da Praia in the area where the clashes started on October 5, 2017, headed north after capturing the islands in the region. The organization’s presence in the region is based on the Ansar al Sunna, which was founded in 2015. The militias, followers of Aboud Rogo Mohammed’s jihadist movement in Kenya, crossed into Mozambique from Kenya. The Ansar Al Sunna movement argues that sharia should prevail in Mozambique. The movement, which began to organize into Macomia, Montepuez and Mocimbao da Praia, continued to gain strength over time.
