@Mozambique ⁩: Armed jihadist claiming allegiance & support to #ISIS launched coordinated attacks in 3 groups to take over #Macomia town & surrounding villages. Simultaneous attacks began in the early morning of 28 May 2020 with a group of about 120 – 150 insurgents (conti)
About 120 – 150 insurgents, attacked the town with vehicles, including captured YangJin YJ2080C Defender Protected Assault Vehicle - A 4x4 vehicle equipped with a W85 heavy machine gun (12.7 x 108mm). The #FADM military was overwhelmed and forced to withdraw.
The jihadist hoisted the ISIS white flags in the #Macomia city centre. Macomia town is some 160km north of the town of Pemba & is on the main road (N380) that connects the north & south of #Cabo #Delgado.
Jihadist are exploiting the strategic weakness of Mozambique in East Africa
@Mozambique - regional COIN efforts must be initiated- Mozamzique could become a launching pad and save haven for jihadist in East Africa if this trend of capacity building and territorial take over continues unchallenged by state and regional partners.
Latest: The insurgents are still present in the areas around Macomia (Macomia Sede, Songeia, Machocva and Bangala II). Many Macomia residents are still hiding and sleeping in the bushes around Macomia since attacks on Thursday and despite the GSF component deployed there.
