Somalia forces strike Al-Shabaab training camp


In release from the Office of the President, Federal Republic of Somalia, President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo,  applauded the success of his forces, as it is reported that they have launched an attack on the training camp of Al-Shabaab terrorist group,  near Sakow in the Middle Juba region. The President expressed belief that this action will handicap the group from conducting any further attacks within the land.

“Earlier today, I authorized our special forces with the support of our international partners to conduct a strike against an al-Shabaab training camp near Sakow, Middle Juba region. This was a successful strike which destroyed a key al-Shabaab command and supply hub. This will ultimately disrupt the enemy’s ability to conduct new attacks within Somalia.”

The President further recalled how much sufferings and loss they have been afflicted with by the group with their inhumane activities. He stated that his administration will show zero tolerance for terrorism. And that his forces will keep following the evil group until victory is achieved.

“I said when I took office that security will be top priority for my administration. This strike will enhance security and reduce the threats of Alshabab.

“We have long suffered at the hands of Alshabab which is supported by global terror networks. We and our international partners will take every possible precaution to protect our civilian population from harm during these operations while targeting terrorists.

“All of us know somebody from our youth, our village, our families, who has been killed or injured by the senseless violence of al-Shabaab. I have personally met the families and the victims of several Alshabab attacks. For those who have suffered under al-Shabaab, and for the rest of Somalia, I want you to know that we are committed to defeating al-Shabaab and uniting our people.”

In addition, the President, in the sense of breeding peace, seized the opportunity to re-again offer amnesty to the group, promising them of integrating their members in the country’s reform program.  He employed them to let down guards and surrender over before it is too late.

“To the members of al-Shabaab, I tell you that we are bringing the fight to you. If you, however take advantage of my amnesty offer and denounce violence, we will integrate you into our reform program. You have no future with the terrorists, but you can still be a part of Somalia’s future; a peaceful and prosperous future.”
