TFG Needs More Recruits To Hold South

Somalia’s national army requires more forces in southern Somalia to hold to areas they captured from al-Shabab militants, according to somalia’s deputy defense minister and the military and political coordinator for southern regions, Abdirashid Hidig.

Hidig, who was appointed two months ago to lead the military offensive in southern Somalia, told Somalia report they don’t have enough soldiers to hold to the towns they have recently captured and that has hampered effort to move forward to crush al-Shabab.
