Bosaso, PUNTLAND – The Puntland Intelligence and Special Forces (PISF), in a notable demonstration of counter-terrorism efficacy, have successfully neutralized a potential improvised explosive device (IED) attack in Bosaso. This operation follows closely after similar operations yesterday by the Puntland Intelligence and Security Agency (PISA) in the same city, emphasizing the ongoing and robust security efforts in the region.
The success of these operations is rooted in PISF’s and PISA’s extensive intelligence-gathering capabilities. Their vigilant surveillance of terrorist groups, including Al-Shabaab and Islamic State Somalia (IS-S), operating in Puntland, especially in the mountainous areas of the Bari Region, has been crucial. The timely acquisition of information regarding the imminent threat in Bosaso allowed for prompt and decisive action, preventing what could have been a devastating attack.
The Continuous Threat and Puntland’s Response
A Beacon of Vigilance and Resilience
Puntland’s consistent efforts in thwarting terrorist activities, as evidenced by the operations in Bosaso, reinforce its status as a resilient and proactive region in the fight against extremism. The ongoing commitment of Puntland’s security forces – PISF and PMF – to safeguard its citizens and maintain peace sets a strong precedent for counter-terrorism efforts across Somalia.
