Al-Shabaab militia in the port city of Kismayo on Monday compelled community elders to support the war they are at loggerheads with Somali Nation Forces and their allies in a bid to block the loss of their final stronghold.

Abdirahman Hudeyfa, one of the top-brass Al-Shabaab leaders in Kismayo revealed that their group is to face a hard task since they are besieged in the port city.

An elder who spoke to Sunatimes on an anonymity condition reveals that the group asked them to incorporate their youth into the sect to battle alongside the militia.

The elder added that they can’t offer any assistance to Al-Shabaab since they are in a period of uncertainty where every family is thinking on how to flee out of the port city.

Kismayo town is a stronghold of Al- Shabaab militia in which Somali forces alongside AMISOM troops are currently planning a final assault to wipe-out the Al-Qaeda linked terror wing.
