‘Not Black Hawk Down anymore’: US and Somalia team up to fight terrorists | Washington Examiner

Somalia has been moving more towards normalizing their place with the rest of the world and has made numerous recent strides to do so. U.S. security forces are now working with Somalia to conduct antiterrorism training and improve security. The World Bank has also restored their relationship with Mogadishu for the first time in the past 30 years. Currently there are around 500 troops in Somalia helping to curb the recent increase in terror attacks by al Qaeda groups, as well as a large amount of air support provided through AFRICOM. Somalia’s special forces Danab Brigade is also training with U.S. special operation forces in order to improve counterattack abilities and encourage collaboration.
