Somali Government Welcomes UN Sanctions on al-Shabab Leaders

The Somali government is pleased with the UN Security Council’s decision to sanction three al-Shabab leaders at Somalia’s request.

Minister of Information, Culture, and Tourism, Daud Aweis Jama, announced on his X account (formerly Twitter) that the sanctioned individuals are now under Resolution 2713, which includes financial restrictions and travel bans.

The sanctions will prevent these leaders from accessing funds and traveling.

Al-Shabab has been fighting the Somali government and the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) since 2007.
