A new Hezbollah: Qatar’s militia in Somalia

  • al-shabaab

Qatar’s regime has created a new terrorist entity in Somalia. Terrified by the Saudi, Emirati, and Egyptian support for the Somalian president, it funded the Brotherhood’s Islah party in the roiled country and founded a militia formed from Al-Shabaab terrorist group.

Al Jazeera’s Fahad Yasin had secretly met with Qatari and Iranian intelligence officers and a Somalian presidency official has close ties with Doha’s regime. 

Tamim tasked him with destabilizing Jubaland, Galmudug, and Puntland, but the self-governed provinces reject Qatar’s pro-terror policies. 

The goal is to form a militia in Somalia similar to Hezbollah and Hamas. Zakaria Ismail, a leader from Al-Shabaab, is already recruiting fighters. 

Qatari and Iranian intelligence officers are training them and an operations rooms in Qatar’s embassy will run the newly born terrorist group.

International calls for investigations into Qatar’s 2022 World Cup bid

International calls for investigations into Qatar’s 2022 World Cup bid

Right now, Qatar is in no shape to hold the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The country has to undergo enormous constructions, build and extend football stadiums, roads, and highways, and ensure great extension to public transport. A major portion of Qatar’s workforce already comprises of overseas workers. And the issues involving Qatar’s immigrant and workforce policies have already been highlighted a number of times by various human rights groups. The workers are like slaves in the country and they can’t even leave their jobs without the permission of their sponsor. Qatar’s commitment to human rights is pathetic and although it promised in 2014 to bring reforms in this department, little improvements have been made. While Qatar is iterating 2022 FIFA World Cup to be a catalyst of change, modern-day slavery is at its peak in the country. The Nepalese Ambassador to Qatar, Maya Kumari Sharma informed the world in 2013 that the workforce responsible for working on the 2022 World Cup project is facing very harsh conditions. They are not being given their due salaries and their work ID permits. So basically, they are working as illegal immigrants and are being exploited to the fullest extent. Even if they did try to escape this slavery and leave this country, they would be caught and put to jail for having incomplete documents. In addition, Qatar’s support of terrorism is no private thing, and the country is accommodating some major terrorist names that have been barred from the countries of the United States and Britain. This clearly violates FIFA’s anti-terrorism policy as well, which states that FIFA will not hold any major tournament in any country which actively supports terrorism.
