President Hassan Sheikh praised the armed forces and the people in the region for their united front against Al-Shabaab and encouraged them to continue their liberation struggle.
He said the government is committed to eradicating Al-Shabaab from the entire country.
“Every Somali has the responsibility to play his part in the fight against the enemy,” said the president.
