Mozambique: Why IS is so hard to defeat in Mozambique

They name themselves al-Shabab, an Arabic phrase for “the young men” or “the lads”. This is deceptive as they don’t seem to be the identical group as Somalia’s al Qaeda-linked insurgents who additionally go by that title. Instead, this group pledged allegiance in 2019 to the rival IS group, based mostly in Iraq and Syria. They have adopted the title of Islamic State Central Africa Province (ISCAP), which once more is deceptive since Mozambique is not a part of Central Africa.
