The terrorist group has also destroyed part of the riverbank of the Shabelle river, houses, a bridge, the disabling of telecommunication antennas, and 11 school buildings.
The leaders called on the UNSC to lift the arms embargo “to ensure that Somalia is sufficiently equipped to effectively address the security threat posed by the Al Shabab and other terrorist groups.”
The high-level drought response meeting is coming at a time when there is a severe drought in many parts of the country, as well as an ongoing war against the Al-Shabaab which lost key ground to SNA and local residents.

The president, according to Villa Somalia is expected to hold talks with several foreign leaders on the sidelines of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
Last week, United Nations Relief Chief Martin Griffiths has visited Somalia's South West state, the epicenter of the country's severe drought.
