“Today we conducted a cordon and search in Mogadishu and we captured a lot of
military equipment, which you can see here and some of it was already fixed, for example, you can see this ammunition which was already fixed to be used this night. Because of our cooperation, we captured all of them, we have also a cargo there, with a lot of ammunition, bombs and there are many guns there.

get peace and security.”
