The African Union (AU) mission to Somalia condemned the latest terrorist attacks in Somalia. The mission said the “attacks underline the urgency and critical importance of the ongoing military offensive to further degrade al-Shabab.”
President Joe Biden of America resent US troops into Somalia earlier this year. The request to send 500 US troops came from the Pentagon. However, since this period, the Islamist forces of Al-Shabaab (Al-Shabab) appear emboldened internally and externally.
Al-Shabaab Islamists (linked to Al-Qaeda) have also clashed deep into the Somali region of Ethiopia with the armed forces of this nation. Also, internal terrorist attacks by al-Shabaab continue unabated despite some recent setbacks. Therefore, the latest car bombings are a grim reminder of the potency of this Islamist terrorist group.
