Al Shabaab Terrorists in Somalia Tweet Out Photos of Dead French Soldier

Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen is an Islamic movement that governs South & Central Somalia and part of the global struggle towards the revival of Islamic Khilaafa Somalia. They opened a Twitter account recently and are posting photos of dead French soldiers from the botched hostage rescue this weekend.

(FYI: I scrubbed the faces out.)

Here’s one tweet: “A return of the crusades, but the cross could not save him from the sword.”

Here’s another tweet: “French commander killed during botched rescue operation in Bulo-Marer.”

The terrorists also issued a press release on the botched rescue.

The French rescue operation in Bulo-Marer, Lower Shabelle region, not only failed to secure the release of Dennis Alex but also resulted in the death of several of the French forces and injured many more.

Among those severely injured during the botched operation was the French commander leading the operation.

The commander was deserted by his comrades after a fierce firefight and subsequently captured by the Mujahideen. HSM paramedic teams arrived at the scene shortly after the firefight had ended and transferred him to a hospital at the base, but he succumbed to his injuries hours later.

The Mujahideen recovered several weapons and the soldier’s gear from the scene of battle and later also managed to retrieve valuable information from the soldier before his death. The body of the soldier is still within the custody of the Mujahideen.
