On May 12, 2021, Shahada News Agency, an affiliate of Al-Shabab Movement, shared a post on Telegram congratulating Muslims on the upcoming Eid al-Fitr holiday marking the end of Ramadan. The post included a photo showing women and children in areas held by Al-Shabab in Somalia holding banners that read: "Jerusalem Will Not Be Judaized."
The post explained that "the residents of the Islamic wilayat in central and southern Somalia, which are under the control of the Al-Shabab Mujahideen movement, are celebrating Eid by renewing their pledge that Jerusalem will not be Judaized."
The post noted that the motto was first used in response to President Donald Trump's recognizing Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel, adding that the residents of the Islamic Wilayat [i.e., provinces] in central and southern Somalia are very concerned with the ongoing events "in occupied Palestine" and that "therefore they are showing their full solidarity and continuing support."
