Thousands of Ethiopian troops have crossed into Somalia to join a large-scale offensive against al-Shabab extremists just weeks after Somalia’s worst attack left more than 350 people dead, border residents said Thursday.
Somalia’s president, vowing a “state of war,” has visited countries in the region to seek more military support since the massive truck bombing Oct. 14 in the capital, Mogadishu.
Somalia is preparing for an offensive with African Union multinational forces that is meant to push al-Shabab fighters out of their strongholds in Lower Shabelle and Middle Shabelle regions, where many deadly attacks on Mogadishu and Somali and African Union bases have been launched.
