Somali rebels have launched a recruitment drive to counter a government offensive, a top al Shabaab militant said March 1, Reuters reported. Speaking in Somalia’s rebel-held Gedo region, Muktar Robow (aka Abu Mansur) urged all Somalis, especially former military officers, to take up arms and join al Shabaab’s counter-offensive. Meanwhile, heavily armed Ethiopian troops have amassed at the border from Mandera, Kenya, to the Ethiopian frontier town of Dollow, according to local residents and an unnamed Somali military officer. Somali troops and the government-allied Ahlu Sunnah Waljamaah militia are on the frontline and will continue to fight to weaken the rebels, the officer said.
