ITALY DELIVERS A SIGNIFICANT AID PACKAGE TO SOMALIA

Mogadishu, 2nd April 2014



Today a significant aid package of Italy, consisting of 28 vehicles to be donated to the Somali police as well as in uniforms and equipment for the Somali Federal Forces arrived with a Hercules C130. The donation was delivered in Mogadishu during an official ceremony. The event took place in Mogadishu in the presence of the Prime Minister of the Federal Government of Somalia, Mr. Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed, the Italian Ambassador Mr. Andrea Mazzella, the Brig. Gen. Massimo Mingiardi, Mission Commander of the EUTM, and the Col. Bernardo Mencaraglia, Commandant of the National Unit support, the Chief of Staff of Army and Aviation, representative of the federal Government, Ministry of Defense, Foreign Affairs and National Security together with a number of authorities and representative of the local press.

The ceremony was held at the premises of the Mogadishu International Airport perimeters where both the Italian Contingent of “Brigata Folgore”, operating as ‘quick reaction team’ inside the EUTM mission and led by Gen. Mingiardi, and the Italian diplomatic offices are based and operative since January, 2012.

The Italian Aid, for a total amount of over one Million of Euro, will strengthen the Somali capacity in fighting the terrorism of ‘Al Shabaab’ matrix and ensure the control over the national territory. Among the equipment handed over to the Federal Somali Institutions, satellite antennas, generators and security systems for the functioning of the Somali Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The armaments are not included in the Italian contribution due to the partial embargo still active in Somalia following the decision of the United Nations Security Council.

“We deeply thank Italy and the Italian people for their continuous support”, Somali PM has declared. By underlying the importance of the commitment of the Italian Government, Mr. Abdiweli pointed out that “Italy is the country that knows us better because of our traditional friendship and solidarity as well as the historical heritage that link our nations together. We look toward Italy in our way to peace and stability”.

The Italian Ambassador Mazzella added that “those donations are the results of a general and renewed commitment of the Italian Government in Somalia at all levels, especially in the last years following the opening of the Italian diplomatic offices. In addition to this, Italy has taken charge of the EUTM mission through the appointment of the Gen. Brig. Massimo Mingiardi as EUTM Mission Commander in January as well as signed cooperation agreements in the field of security with the aim to support the FF.AA. Federal and the Somali. With this regard, the Italian Carabinieri is organizing in the coming months the second edition of training course for two hundred units at the Police Academy in Gibuti.

Italy is also active in the humanitarian and infrastructure sector with aid addressed to the Somali population. The Italian government’s funds allowed the rehabilitation of the “De Martino” Hospital in Mogadiscio and the reconstruction of a medical presidium in  Eyl, a village in Puntland that used to be an old pirate base, while works are in progress for the renovation of the Bossaso aeroport landing field, where finally international cargo aircrafts will be enable to bring humanitarian aid to the population.

In this framework, the Italian commitment in Somalia, with its increased presence through diplomatic offices and the deployment of qualified official of the Army, should culminate with the reopening of the Italian Embassy in Mogadiscio within the next summer.

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
