Al-Shabab Elects New Leader Following Godane’s Death in US Strike



Somalia Military StrikeFollowing the United States’ air strikes on Somalia, which resulted in the death of Al-Shabab leader, Ahmed Abdi Godane, it appears that the terrorist group has already elected a new leader.

The group has announced one of its commanders, Ahmad Umar who is also called Abu Ubaidah, as the new leader, BBC reports.

In a statement released via their website, Al-Shabab announced the election of their new leader, and also warned of the “consequences”of Godane’s death:

“Avenging the death of our scholars and leaders is a binding obligation on our shoulders that we will never relinquish nor forget no matter how long it takes.

By the permission of Allah, you will surely taste the bitter consequences of your actions.”

    This my statement can be a bit sensitive but I’m directing it to all Muslims.
    Why is it that you tag islam as a religion of peace but I haven’t seen any non violent islamic group (or maybe they arnt bold enough) publicly denying the actions of terrorist groups or even donating money to help the US govt cripple terrorist groups(note that most terrorist group are driven by the islamic religion). Does that mean they have the same agenda?

      My thoughts exactly. All the muslim people I know [refer not to comment on it. They must all be the same if not they should stand against violence of their people.

    I can’t understand the mindset of an individual whose sole purpose on earth is to plan the extermination of fellow beings. Thank god there is a country like USA that boldly stands up against those barbaric organizations.
