Arab League condemns recent terrorist attack in Somalia
Arab League Secretary General Dr. Nabil Al-Araby has condemned the recent terrorist attack carried out by Al-Shabab militant group against an African Union Mission base in the town of El Adde, Gedo region in Somalia, which killed and wounded dozens of Kenyan soldiers.
Arab League confirms its support and stand by African Union’s noble tasks performed at most sincerity and courage by the Union’s missions in various areas in Somalia to face terrorism in that country, Al-Araby said in a statement Monday.
Such terrorist attacks, aimed at curbing the march of reconstructing Somalia’s state institutions, would fail in accomplishing its goals, he affirmed, reiterating League’s willingness to double its cooperation efforts with the Somalian government, African Union, UN, and international and regional organizations to counter terrorism and eradicate its roots.
Al-Araby expressed the League’s deep condolences to the Kenyan government and people, wishing the injured a speedy recovery.
