The murderous group al-Shabaab is continuing to commit heinous and despicable crimes against innocent lives. Exactly one year ago, the terminable group planned and orchestrated the worst single attack on innocent civilians in Somalia’s civil war history where over 500 innocent lives were lost.
It is an attack that proves how the blood-sucking group al-Shabaab aims at massacring and exterminating the Somali population. Apart from more than 500 people losing their lives, over 1000 people were wounded and 200 are still unaccounted for. Property and businesses worth 6.3 million dollars and close to 2000 people’s lives were affected in one way or another.
More than 2000 children were orphaned by the attack among them 962 who are under the age of 18 and most of them are still under the care of the Somali government. As the Somali people remember those who lost their lives in the worst attack carried by the murderous group on the 14th of October 2017 on innocent civilians, the country needs to come together in defeating the common enemy al-Shabaab.
