Al-Shabab militants shot down an “unknown state” attack drone in Somalia

Militants operating in the territory of Africa, the terrorist group Al-Shabab, who recently announced their oath of allegiance to ISAH (IG), shot down a drone drone "unknown state". According to the Qatari TV channel Al Jazeera, the drone carried six missiles and fell in the province of Gedo in southern Somalia, away from populated areas. These territories are not actually controlled by official Mogadishu, if today we can seriously talk about the official authorities of Somalia, and about Somalia itself as a single state.


Al-Shabab militants shot down an “unknown state” attack drone in Somalia


Attention is drawn to the fact that Al-Jazeera writes about an interview taken by a TV channel reporter from the leader of the Somali cell Al-Shabab. If we take into account that representatives of ISIS are not accustomed to stand on ceremony with journalists, the opportunity to interview Qatari journalists from Al-Shabab militants leads to certain thoughts ...

Al-Jazeera, citing the leader of the Somali terrorist group, reports that the drone’s wrecks were collected, as well as its weapons. The report states that the missiles that armed the drone did not explode.

At the moment, no country has declared its unmanned aerial vehicle disappeared in the sky of Somalia.

Meanwhile, claiming ignorance of the nationality of a military drone, Al-Jazeera, referring to an expert, writes about "fears." According to the expert, the militants may sell (attention!) Missiles and their component parts to Iran or China because of the "possibility of contacts." That is, the Qatari TV correspondent freely communicates with the Al-Shabab militants, and the expert’s concern is about the “possibility of contact” of the militants with Iran and China ...

          Well, one "unknown state" always has a photo, only they are secret and are not shown to anyone.
          Only in this case, they probably also have his performance characteristics and technical documentation. "Unknown states" are so unknown.

      I agree. This is a UAV UA and it launched from Djibouti. CA holds them for the quirks. The most important import supplier in Djibouti SA. CA twists them.

    The report claims that the missiles with which the attack drone was armed didn't rip.

    and what kind of shock UAV with 6 missiles? The ripper, it seems, can only carry up to 4.

      It depends on which equipment option is chosen. It takes 1.5 tons. But most likely it was standard equipment, and local bearded men did not bother. 6 shells counted that well.

    Militants of the Al-Shabab terrorist group operating in Africa, who recently announced their oath of allegiance to ISIS (IS), shot down a drone from an "unknown state".

    By the way, they also launched the Boeing in Mogadishu:

      not, that it has six suspensions is understandable. In the photo, like, a mixed bomb-missile load, kmk. Two GBU + helpfires?

    since there is no evidence and the countries did not recognize it, it follows that this group, which recently swore allegiance to ISIS, in this way invented this fake to show the ISIS people that they are in fact very cool "posons".
