Somalia: MPs Call to Boost Military Push Against Al Shabab

Mogadishu — Several MPs in Somalia Federal Parliament have on Sunday called for boosting up the ongoing military operations against Al shabab fighters in south and central Somalia.

Dahir Amin Jesow, one of the Somalia's new lawmakers, urged Somali government officials to step up war on Al shabab until they are being rooted out of the entire country. He has been attacked in Lower Shabelle region during his recent visit by Al shabab.

The call comes as Somali forces along with AMISOM soldiers are making gains against Al shabab. The allied forces secured the capital last year and that opened door to seize some key town in south following months of offensives.
