On Sunday 28th of June 2015, the terror group Harakat Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement took over a military post outside Kismayu after a fierce exchange of gunfire with Somali army troops.

SNA lost 7 soldiers in the attack. This shows the army has no proper defense, poor formations, and literary no capable counter-attack capability.

The Somali government has been seeking the withdrawal of the Kenya Defense Forces in Kismayu.

Kenya has limited its operations in Southern Somalia to pacification and counter-terrorism operations besides disrupting militancy.
