The overarching goal in Somalia for the U.S. Department of Defense is to help the Federal Government of Somalia provide a safe and secure environment for the people of Somalia, and deter organizations such as al-Shabaab and ISIS. Some of our efforts include creating defense institutions and increasing logistics security force assistance to ensure Somalia is capable of conducting and sustaining operations against al-Shabaab.
