Mozambique Interior Minister Amade Miquidade has said that the video broadcast on social media showing a woman being tortured and executed by men in military uniforms is part of a jihadist propaganda campaign aimed at damaging the image of the army.
“This video is not the only thing terrorists are exposing. It is more than a video, it is more than an image that they divulge with subversive intent,” he said, before adding that the woman’s execution was “macabre “Action is and” inhuman “, as reported by the Mozambican newspaper” O Pais “.
He stressed that “the defense and security forces would never do anything similar”. “The terrorists with their macabre actions, slaughtering their victims, dismembering them alive and causing violent deaths without mercy, only show their brutal character,” argued Miquidade.
Mozambican Defense Minister Jaime Neto said the video was edited by “malicious people” to damage the army’s image, the BBC reported.
