Al-Shabab wing that is operating in Ethiopia since recently, warns Ethiopians to convert to Islam or prepare to die -Jihadist, Muslim extremist operating in Ethiopia warns in Amharic language.
In a video shared on social media, Al-Shabab says it is currently operating mainly in Afar region and some parts of Amhara region in Oromo special zone.
“We work with any international armed groups that fights for Islam,” says the person on the video. We cannot verify if this video is officially released by the group.
However, a couple of months ago, Al-Sabab in Somalia announced that it is recruiting Ethiopian Muslims that speak Afaan oromo and Amharic so that it spread its message in both languages.
