US has also supplied East Africa partners with state of art equipments that have been instrumental in the fight against Alshabaab which had included the use of drones and even gathering of intelligence.
US seems to be also pushing for a different strategy in fight against Alshabaab ,this is after Somalia media reported that US is calling UN to sanction three Alshabaab operatives accused of sponsoring the militia.
"#Somalia and #US have asked #UN to sanction 3 #Alshabaab operatives. They include Abukar Ali Aden, the deputy leader, Moalim Ayman, the commander of Jaysh Ayman and Mahad Karate, the ex-deputy leader. The three are wanted for sponsoring terrorism." SBC Somali TV tweeted.
This move if approved will deal huge blow to the group since their operations is largely dependent on financial support from some unidentified individuals.
