Mogadishu (HAN) September 7, 2014 – Defense and national security news. Somali Chief of National Security Intelligence sacked for ineffectiveness, according to Geeska Afrika Online security correspondance in Mogadishu.

The U.S. has carried out several airstrikes in Somalia recent years.

Somali National Security Agency (NSS) has got a credible intelligence that Al-Shabaab Islamic militants are planning attacks following the death of their leader in a U.S. air strike Monday, a top official said.

Somalia’s national security minister General Ereg, said targets including medical and educational institutions could be targeted as well as any valuable US assets in the region. The National security minister added his statement that, Somali national security forces are vigilant, high alert and prepared its security forces to mitigate any such militant attacks in Somalia.
