A Somali Islamic Courts defence chief has for the first time called on foreign Muslim fighters to join his movement’s war against Ethiopia.
“We’re saying our country is open to Muslims worldwide. Let them fight in Somalia and wage jihad, and God willing, attack Addis Ababa,” Yusuf Mohamed Siad, known as Inda’ade, said.
“Today the war is being fought by land and air,” Sheikh Mahmud Ibrahim Suley, an SICS official, told reporters in Mogadishu.
“We want anyone who can help remove the enemy to come in,” he told a news conference in the Mogadishu, the Somali capital and an Islamic Courts stronghold.
“Our Islamic fighters have taken control of Idale and are heading to other parts where Tigray (Ethiopian) invaders are now based, by the will of Allah, we will liberate our people and country from the Ethiopian invaders,” Islamic Courts Information chief Abdurahim Ali Muddey said the AFP.
“We are at war with Ethiopia, but not with the government,” Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys, the Islamic Courts leader said on Thursday.
Somalia’s Islamic courts on Monday, June 5, claimed victory over a US-backed warlord alliance after four months of fierce fighting in the capital Mogadishu that claimed the lives of hundreds as the interim government invited the courts to take part in dialogue.
“The Joint Islamic Courts are not interested in a continuation of hostilities and will fully implement peace and security after the change has been made by the victory of the people with the support of Allah,” its chairman Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed said in a statement cited by Agence France-Presse (AFP).
