Turkey Opens its Largest Overseas Military Academy in Somalia”

Mogadishu - Turkey inaugurated on Saturday the largest foreign-run military training centre in Somalia, where local troops are due to take over the protection of a nation threatened by Shabaab Islamist attacks.

Chief of the General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces is welcomed by Chief of Army Gen. Mohamed Ahmed Jim'ale. Around 200 Turkish soldiers and trainers will be stationed at Ankara's new military base, which is near Mogadishu's airport.

Gen. Hulusi Akar was received by the commander of the Somali armed forces, Gen. Mohamed Ahmed Jim'ale, at Adan Abdulle global airport in Mogadishu.

Located south of Mogadishu, the training facility had been under construction for the last two years.

A top Somali army general has survived an apparent assassination attempt after a bomb struck his convoy near Mogadishu on Sunday, Garowe Online reports.

He gave no further details of the visit, but Akar is expected to meet Somalia's president, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, as well as the prime minister, senior Somali government officials said.

Senior Somali officials, Turkish and foreign diplomats attended the ceremony amid tight security.

Shabaab spokesman Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, also known as Sheik Ali Dhere, said in a released audio message that the attack was in retaliation for the deaths of 11 farmers in a night raid by Somali commandos who were receiving USA military assistance.
