Following a reported rise in crime in Abyan governorate, Al-Qaeda is offering locals a new service called ‘Telephone for Help’.
The telephone helpline will be established for “the Mujahedoon” to report their grievances.
Al-Qaeda said the project would help compensate for “aggression of the army” against the people of Abyan governorate.
According to them, the helpline is a fulfillment of their promise to serve and protect the people.
“This project has arisen from an increase in incidents of looting and robbery,” added the sources.
According to the sources, those who received the reports would verify the information before taking action to stop the “violations against Muslims”.
