A senior Al Shabaab leader who is in charge of Baay and Bakool regions of Southern Somalia has threatened more attacks in Mogadishu, day after new President took over the power.
The unnamed leader said Al Shabaab militants will carry out attacks against the new Somalia government installations and African Union peacekeepers’ bases in the Capital.
The Al Shabaab militant group has denounced newly elected Somalia President, Mohamed Abdullahi ‘Farmajo’, for backing the African Union troops currently in the country on a mission to weed out the Islamist fighters.
Through their radio broadcast, the militants termed efforts to rebuild the national army as an “endless project”.
On Thursday, February 17, two people were killed in a barrage of mortar rounds fired toward Somalia’s presidential palace as the country’s new leader moved in.
President Mohamed was not injured in the attack.
