The terrorists have killed more than 1,500 people in northern Mozambique 
The terrorists captured a strategic port town in Mozambique earlier this year – telling locals it would be their new stronghold – and have killed thousands in the African country 
 ISIS -linked jihadis have amassed a fighting force that is wreaking havoc and slaughtering its enemies.
The terrorists have killed more than 1,500 people in northern Mozambique and displaced more than a quarter of a million since 2017. 
The southern Africa country has been overrun by militants in recent years. 
Back in August, ISIS militants captured the port town of Mocimboa da Praia, in the province of Cabo Delgado, and told locals it would be their new capital. 
The region is rich in oil – featuring Total and Exxon Mobile bases – and its deep forests offer terrorists smuggling routes for arms and ammunition. 
Locals refer to the armed group as the Machababos or Al Shabaab, but the ISIS-affiliated group calls itself Al-Sunnah Wa Jama’ah.
