The deteriorating security situation in Somalia ... between a powerless government and increasing terrorism

The Maat Foundation for Peace, Development and Human Rights notes, through its follow-up and monitoring of the security situation in the # State of Somalia, a clear and remarkable decline in the #_the right to security, despite the international and regional support provided to the Somali government to confront the # terror of the Youth Movement.

In April 2020, at least 44 people were killed in Somalia, after 17 terrorist attacks, as the largest country that suffered a number of terrorist attacks during that month among all African countries.

Likewise, in May 2020, Somalia ranked third in terms of the most casualties in Africa, with at least 57 people, and the countries were the most vulnerable to terrorist operations that month with 15 terrorist operations.

This was repeated in June 2020, when the Foundation monitored the fall of at least 15 people, after the country was subjected to the largest number of terrorist operations on the continent, by 10 operations.

The same is the case in July 2020, in which the Foundation detected at least 15 victims, with the largest number of terrorist operations on the continent also that month; By 14 operations.

The Maat Foundation for Peace, Development and Human Rights expresses its grave concern about the Somali government's continued weakness in the face of terrorism, despite the support of AMISOM # and # AFRICOM in the country; And other international actors. However, this was not sufficient for the Somali government to prove its ability to protect the Somali citizen and preserve his right to security, who has suffered for many years from the ravages of this # terrorism.

The Foundation also warns of Al-Shabaab terrorism, which has begun to penetrate and increase its material and logistical capabilities inside and outside the country - recently in Kenya - and the Foundation recommends the necessity of security coordination between East African governments to prevent the spread of Al-Shabaab in the region.
