The United States has resumed its military assistance to the Somali government in order to reinforce operations against Al-Qaeda-linked youth militias.


The US Embassy in Somalia said in a statement yesterday that the resumption of military assistance “comes as a result of our increased confidence in the economic reforms that Somalia has implemented”.

The statement added that the Somali government should focus on restructuring and strengthening the security sector to improve its forces’ capabilities to enhance security and stability in the country.

The United States announced in July 2019 its intention to restore military support for the Somali army after stopping it in December 2017.
