Now is also stronger than al qaeda
Al Shabaab is now more popular among Islamic radicals due to the declining strength and support of al Qaeda. Al Shabab has undergone strong military training over the years fighting government armies, UN forces. Experienced fighters equipped with modern weapons make this organization extremely ruthless and dangerous. Iro was the first head of Al Shabaab. It was Iro who contacted the Taliban after losing in Somalia and sent his fighters to train with the Taliban in Afghanistan. After this, al-Shabaab started attacking in Somalia just like the Taliban. According to government sources, as of May 2011, Al Shabab has about 15,000 dreaded and trained terrorist fighters. Godane is currently heading the organization.
