Today, Thursday, the Somali National Intelligence and Security Service forces confiscated a ship carrying military equipment belonging to the “Al-Shabaab” militia linked to the “Al-Qaeda” organization, in the Mogadishu International Port..
The Somali News Agency (SUNA) stated that the Somali National Intelligence Agency closely followed the military equipment that was hidden in the commercial goods brought into the country, as well as the country from which it was transported and the time it was processed..
She added that the Somali security forces also monitored the activities of a large network abroad linked to Mogadishu, working to buy, load and unload such military equipment in the port until it is delivered to the hands of terrorists..
The Somali National Intelligence and Security Service indicated that the network consisted of more than 10 people, and the forces managed to arrest them without anyone escaping, and confiscated four cars that were intended to transport this military equipment to the terrorist enemy..
In a related context, the Somali security forces seized goods unloaded from Mogadishu International Airport, noting that “the port and airport are two important sources for the country, and the seizure of these tools and goods is evidence of the hard work being done by the security services in the country and how our intelligence has been strengthened.”“.
“The people involved in these activities include businessmen who have been allowed by the government to bring in things that the Somali people need, but instead it appears that they are bringing into the country something that is dangerous for the country and the people,” she added.“.
