On the frontline of Somalia’s fight against al-Shabab

Local forces defend government-controlled territory in Kismayo, constantly under threat of al-Shabab attacks.

The Somali army is training new recruits in the port city of Kismayo, one of the last remaining strongholds of al-Shabab.

Until they finish their training, fighters from the regional administration have the task of defending the territory under government control.
