As many as 600 Al-Shabaab members were killed in the past three months, according to a PM report marking the 100th day of his stay in office this week.
MOGADISHU, Somalia - The Prime Minister of Somalia Hamza Abdi Barre chaired the weekly cabinet meeting at his office in Villa Somalia on Thursday which focused on the war against Al-Shabaab.
The council of ministers discussed the stabilization of the areas liberated from Al-Shabaab in the past few months by the army and local residents and how to deliver important government services.
The cabinet presented plans for the service delivery to the communities in the liberated areas, such as health, education, justice, security, and reconciliation as the operation gains more ground.
The people in the recaptured villages have been under Al-Shabaab rule for a long time and were prevented from government services and humanitarian aid from international agencies.
Prime Minister Hamza instructed the ministries to work on the support of the Somalis in the former Al-Shabaab strongholds as soon as possible to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe.
Hamza who has been in office since June 2022 said the government will continue the ongoing war until the whole country is eradicated from the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabaab militants.
As many as 600 Al-Shabaab members were killed and 68 areas retaken in the past three months, according to a PM report marking the 100th day of his stay in office this week.
