Terrorist Attacks Against Mogadishu Facilities

On Sunday, reportedly at least three militants were killed in Mogadishu as a result of an Al-Qaeda linked attack on an intelligence training facility. The attackers arrived outside of the Mogadishu compound where they detonated the car in the Shibis district. Two gunmen were shot and killed as a result.

So far, Somalia has been at risk since Al-Shabab recently vowed to increase its attacks against the federal government in what it is calling its Ramadan offensive. Youth of Somalia are being warned not to fall prey to terrorist groups who have been recruiting youth to Al-Shabab to carry out attacks during Ramadan and the rest of the year against government officials, institutions, security personnel, United Nations organizations, foreign embassies and African Union troops.

This attack comes after an Al-Shabab attack on Saturday where almost a dozen security personnel were killed in Afgoye.
