These four states accounted for three quarters of all #IS’s attacks in Ramadan.

The Islamic State has released photos from #DRC showing the ADF, or the Congolese branch of its Central African Province, renewing its allegiance to the Islamic State's new leader. It looks like, though still unconfirmed, Musa Baluku - ADF's overall emir - is in first two photos
Also looks like at least two ADF camps shown in the photos. Photos 1 & 2 are from one camp, 3 & 4 another. Shows the group coordinated from multiple camps to renew the pledge, despite being on the move after the joint Ugandan-Congolese intervention against it.
These are just a sample to show the camp distribution in the photos. IS released a total of 10 photos from #Congo and another 9 from the #Mozambique wing of ISCAP - all showing the fighters renewing their oaths of allegiance to Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi.

𝗠𝗮𝗹𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗺 𝗫:- All of African natural minerals and wealth are needed by the Western industrialists in order for their industry to keep running at the clip that it’s been used to.

Can we prove it? YES! ImageImageImage
You know that France lost her French West African possessions, Belgium lost the Congo 🇨🇩, England lost Nigeria 🇳🇬 and Ghana 🇬🇭 and some of the other English-speaking areas; France also lost Algeria, or the Algerians took Algeria 🇩🇿
As soon as these European powers lost their African possessions, Belgium had an economic crisis, the same year she turned the Congo loose.

Yesterday, a Telegram channel associated with the #WagnerGroup posted a call for recruits:

"The Wagner Philharmonic has decided to take part in the Great World Concert and is holding auditions to select for its touring musical troupe."

A 🧵 on #Wagner & what the post reveals.
1. Some background: Russian #VDV Airborne #Spetsnaz commander Dmitry Utkin adopted the callsign "Wagner" in the first Russian incursion in #Donbas in 2014, a triple entendre indicating his position as "conductor" of off-book scouts and saboteurs now known as the #WagnerGroup.
2. Much has been made of Wagner's affiliation with neo-Nazi movements in #Russia. But the cultural weave of Russian mercenaries is more nuanced.

"Wagner" also refers to the German composer's valorization during the #ThirdReich by Adolf Hitler & Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

The UN monitoring team has published its 29th report on al-Qaida and the Islamic State. Over the past years, the monitoring team's analytical reports have developed into key sources on militant groups. This edition is no exception. Here's a summary of the report.
On Central Africa:
The report concludes that member states still don’t see a direct command line between the IS leadership and the group in #Mozambique. Although the group in Mozambique has experienced setbacks, the report says it appears to be “displaced rather than defeated”
The report estimates that ISCAP has between 600-1200 fighters in #Mozambique mainly consisting of locals and foreigners from #Tanzania and the #Comorros

BREAKING: President Paul Kagame says relations with #Burundi have improved greatly in recent months & more will be done together with President @GeneralNeva to fully restore ties, in order for the citizens of the two countries to co-exist.

Today is #WorldCancerDay.

#Cancer is one of the world’s leading causes of death - accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020, or nearly one in six deaths - despite the fact that all cancers can be treated and many can be prevented or cured.

The most common cancers are breast, lung, colorectal and prostate cancers

Around 1 in 3 deaths from #cancer are due to tobacco use, high body mass index, alcohol consumption, low fruit and vegetable intake and lack of physical activity

Update on #EUTM in #Mozambique with Vice-Admiral Hervé BLÉJEAN,
He confirmed request by #Rwanda to finance military mission and that EU will positively respond (although it is not him to decide on this)/2…
2/-He mentioned "Wagner" in a very strange way, including their propaganda films (13:59) without clearly distancing himself from them;
-He complained that the EUTM was restricted from operating in #CaboDelgado - - He highly praised the reputation of the Rwandan forces within the
3/within the population vis-à-vis the Mozambican forces.
- He could say little about effective coordination between Rwanda, SAMIM and EUTM
- he failed to answer MEPs' questions on how the EUTM would evaluate the success of its training./4

I left Lagos to Mozambique last week. I planned to be there for about a week and return to Nigeria. As I always do before travel, I researched travel & visa requirements. What I found for citizens of Nigeria is that we can get visa on arrival.
In fact, I couldn’t find any information on a Mozambican embassy or consulate in Nigeria, which let me to believe there isn’t any. The logistics officer and travel agent found the same information that I did: “Nigerians get visa on arrival”.
My boss even wrote a letter confirming my employment, including a return ticket, and hotel reservation confirmation directly from the hotel. All paid for. I was ready to go! Well, that was until I got to Mozambique after a 22hr flight time with @flyethiopian.

1. #IS has started reporting attacks from #CaboDelgado again.

This follows a three-month pause in its comms from #Mozambique.

Specifically, in the last three days alone, it’s claimed 16 operations. Image
2. After the recapture of Mocimboa da Praia three months ago by #Mozambique, #Rwanda & #SouthAfrica (among others), #IS’s comms went dark.

However, its network there was far from inactive, as these latest data, combined with what @ACLEDINFO has been reporting, indicate. Image
3. From a geographic perspective, #IS’s self-reported activities in recent months have been confined to the Mocimboa da Praia district of #CaboDelgado.

No attacks were reported from Palma, even though @ACLEDINFO data (displayed in yellow) suggests otherwise. Image

#RDC: Poursuivant l'écriture de mon livre sur la connexion entre les islamistes #ADF (RDC) et Ahlu-Sunna wa-Jamma (#Mozambique), je vous recommande cette lecture, qui creuse au cœur du Jihad dans la région Sub-Sahara, publiée ce jour par @ICSR_Centre…
Vers 2012 l'#ADF commence à changer de dénomination en Madina at-Tawhidwa-l-Muwahideen (#MTM), se référant
à son camp principal et plus tard à l'ensemble du groupe avec 1 nouveau drapeau, mais à l'époque son objectif restait d'établir un gouvernement islamique en #Ouganda
Les relations internationales de l'ADF commencent avec les voyages de Jamil Mukulu en Afghanistan et au Pakistan vers 1970 pour recevoir un entraînement militaire. Il a noué des contacts dans bcp de pays d'Afrique, d'Europe, au Moyen-Orient pour financer les activités de l'ADF.

Oil and natural gas reserves is are increasingly becoming a target by #terrorists/ #insurgencies because it accounts for 6.5% of the global GDP. A good example is #Alshabaab attacks in Northern #Mozambique on the @TotalEnergies $20B offshore LNG facility that is the largest
Foreign investment project in #Africa. Cabo Delgado is also home to vast swaths of natural resource wealth.It also harbours the largest known graphite deposits & nearly half of the world's rubies lie under its soil.
That thus makes #CaboDelgado a hotspot for real and perceived grievances, that are often exploited by #terrorists & proxy war mongers to sow unrest to explore these resources in a manner that won't benefit the locals.

#Rwanda-A thread: I’ve praised HE @PaulKagame 4 his strategic & speedy interventions in #Mozambique & #CAR. Considering the lethargy in Africa he’s a breath of fresh air. Well trained; disciplined & mobile & agile #Rwanda Defence Forces are good 4 Africa‘s Defence & Security
As a Defence & Security analyst, I don’t focus on the internal politics of #Rwanda. That’s for Rwandans to decide but Pres. @PaulKagame has done well. I was in Kigali in the 90s soon after the #RwandaGenocide. Kagame has restored the pride; ”agaciro ka’banyarwanda & Nat. Security
#Rwanda has recovered through tenacity & focused leadership. @CityofKigali is cleanest & safest City in Africa now. #Gacaca courts a homegrown solution has fostered reconciliation. Extremists & activists may not like Pres @PaulKagame bt #Rwandans like him. I like him too!

there's undoubtedly a pattern of refusing evidence of the ground. The Islamic terrorists had a force that maintained their grip on a province, which has now been crushed by the joint Rwanda-Mozambique forces. From reliable data, around 3000 combatants strong
equipped with necessary weaponry to inflict serious damage to national army & dislodge them from their positions.
But the Joint Forces turned the situation around making the insurgents flee while destroying & taking their casualties with them in their retreat as much as possible
The facts are that 4 years of Islamic terrorists grip on Cabo Delgado started to fall apart when on July 9th Joint Forces started offensive, then intensified inflicting heaviest losses to terrorists between 24th & 27th as the Forces were closing in, to take MoçimboadaPraia on 8th
