The recent attacks that were planned and carried out by the murderous group al-Shabaab on a Mogadishu hotel prove how the group gets a thrill from spilling innocent people’s blood.
In solidarity with the people and the Federal Government of Somalia, countries across the world have sent their condolences and support to the Somali people who lost loved ones in such an atrocious attack.
In its years-long fight against civilians, the extremist group has been targeting places where are busy running their everyday errands such as hotels and public open-air markets. So far, authorities have reported that at least 50 people have been killed, and 30 wounded.
Such a cowardly attack will only increase our resilience towards terror and al-Shabaab’s attacks only show how weakened they have been opting to hurt only the unarmed innocent.
The Somali people will definitely survive this, and any rational mind knows that al-Shabaab’s days of wreaking havoc among Somali communities are coming to an end and that these are just the last kicks of a dying horse.
