The footage allegedly calls for taking advantage of people's "drunkenness" during the holiday season, the SITE's report reads.

In recent years, al-Shabaab, a group that is linked with al-Qaeda, has been carrying out deadly attacks against both military and civilian targets in the African state and even into neighboring Kenya.

Al-Shabaab, a militant group that pledged loyalty to al-Qaeda in 2012, has carried out attacks on civilians in Kenya, Uganda and Djibouti in addition to Somalia.

Daesh terrorists have reportedly split from the group and are posing a threat of their own.
