Bossaso (SD) – The ISIS has released photographs of militia fighters training in the mountainous areas of Bari region of Puntland.
One of the Daesh camps is named after former ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi al-Qurashi, who was killed by the United States last year.
The second camp was named after another leader, Abu al-Hasan al-Muhajir, who was killed in October 2019 by shelling in northwest Syria.
In late September of last year, Daish also launched armed military exercises in some parts of Puntland.
This comes as experts have recently raised the possible resurgence of Islamic militants in Somalia, due to lack of coordinated affords in fighting them.
