Somali government continues campaign to clear weapons from Mogadishu
Mareeg.com-The Somali government has been carrying out operations to disarm Mogadishu residents since late last month, successfully seizing large quantities of weapons, some believed to have been heading to al-Shabaab militants, officials said. So far, in joint operations with African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) troops, Somali forces “succeeded in capturing assorted weapons including heavy weapons, light weapons, ammunition pouches, ammunition and also uniforms of the national army”, spokesperson for the Ministry of National Security Mohamed Yusuf told Sabahi. Most of the weapons were uncovered during two separate sweeps on July 27th and August 2nd, Yusuf said, adding that the operations were aided by information provided by government informants. Yusuf added that investigations are under way to determine the owners of the various illegal weapons. source sabaahionle
