“Eritrea is secretly training Somali forces” – report

Wararka Maanta

The Federal Government of Somalia transported 200 young men from the Aden Ade International Airport in Mogadishu to Eritrea yesterday morning.

The information received by Somaliaffairs says that the youth were part of 600 young men the government had been gathering in Shirbow in the past few days.

The plan is to have these young men, when they return from Eritrea, to secretly operate in Mogadishu and replace the (Shield and Spear) Force.

Their training in Eritrea is being kept secret but they will replace the existing force for heavy operations.

Security experts we asked about this issue say the development carries great risk for the country’s security, especially in Mogadishu, and that an already existing force is being destroyed.
