MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) Somalia Council of Ministers during their weekly meeting on Thursday nominated Abdiweli Jama Hussen aka Gorod as the new Army chief replacing Ahmed Jimale Irfiid, while announcing the resignation of the Defense Minister, according to a statement from the office of the Somali Prime Minister.

The resignation of Somali Defense Minister Rashid Abdullahi Mohamed and the army chief Ahmed Jimale Irfiid comes amid increased militant attacks  and political instability in the country.

Recently, the Regional federal member states met in Kismayo and formed a new alliance, while defying the government’s constitutional authority on some key issues including the foreign policy.
