Mustafa AY – TDO – 03.11.2017 In the aftermath of two planned bombing attacks in Somalia within 1 months, Somalian government have taken in motion to seek for a strong military alliance to help Somalian troops force al-Shabaab out of Somalia. Somalian government demonstrated its military forces’ incapability of counter-terrorism.

As a result of frequent visits to neighboring countries, Somalian govt. managed to acquire military support from Ethiopia as the troops in the size of thousands were commissioned to go Somalia. With Ethiopian forces’ presence in Somalia, Somalian government commenced an immediate, determined and destructive offensive against al-Shabaab. With this offensive, Lower Shabelle and Middle Shabelle regions that al-Shabaab is dominating will be purged from its militants by the African Union Forces (AUF).
