“Somalia has made significant progress this year and we cannot allow ourselves to go back on this achievement,” said Ambassador Annadif, adding that such senseless attacks only strengthened the resolve of Somalis to take charge of their destiny and improve their lives.

Ambassador Annadif also reiterated that all of AMISOM’s resources including emergency medical care remain at the disposal of the Somali people and called for more support to enable the Somali security forces respond better to such incidents.

Cases of terrorism have been on the rise in recent months in Somalia, with soldiers and civilians being killed in bomb explosions.

An ambush attack in the outskirts of Mogadishu killed six people and injured two others on December 19.

The attack happened when unidentified gunmen ambushed a vehicle transporting four Syrian and two Somali doctors to a nearby hospital. Three Syrian doctors, two Somali doctors and their bodyguards were killed while two other doctors from Syria and Somalia suffered injuries.

They are now being treated at Mogadishu’s Medina Hospital.
