Reports have emerged that ISIS have captured Qandala port in the country’s northern Puntland region.

The town of just under 20,000 people lays on the imperative waterway of the Aden Gulf, where nearly 20% of the world’s trade passes through to come or from the Suez Canal.

Ground sources have said that ISIS have raised their flag in the town after at least 50 terrorists seized the town.

This is the first push by ISIS in the war stricken country, where it has only operated cells. Jihadism in Somalia has been dominated by the al-Qaeda aligned al-Shabab terrorist group.
