Somali Leaders Praise UN Security Council for Enforcing Sanctions Against al-Shabab Militants

In a recent development, the Somali government has expressed gratitude for the UN Security Council’s decision to impose sanctions on three al-Shabab leaders following a request made by the Somali government.

Daud Aweis Jama, the Minister of Information, Culture, and Tourism, took to his social media platform to commend the decision. He mentioned that the sanctioned individuals are now officially on the sanctions list outlined in Resolution 2713. They will face financial constraints and travel limitations as a consequence.

The announcement highlighted that those who have been sanctioned will experience restrictions in receiving funds and traveling to different locations.

Since 2007, al-Shabaab has been engaged in conflict with the Somali government and the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS). ATMIS is a diverse mission with authorization from the African Union and a mandate given by the United Nations Security Council.
