Kenyan-born Al-Shabaab member has been seen in a new propaganda video released by Al-Shabaab on Saturday.
In the video, Ahmed Iman calls Muslims in the East African countries, including Kenya to leave their native countries and join into the Jihad war in Somalia.
“In Islam, there is Ibada called Hijra [migration]. I call all East African Muslims to migrate to Somalia and join into the Jihad war.” Ahmed Iman said in the video.
In the 22 minute video, the Kenyan-born Al-Shabaab commander Ahmed Iman is seen sitting under a tree inside Al-Shabaab’s training camp where hundreds of young Al-Shabaab fighters are trained.
His left and right sides were masked fighters of Al-Shabaab.
“Don’t cut the Hijra. Hjira does not end until receptions ends.” he said.
The video is among rare videos with Kenyans by Al-Shabaab.
Somali intelligence source estimates that more than 400 Kenyan-born fighters and trainers are in Somalia and that some of those fighters were sent back to carry out attacks in Kenyan territories.
