, Situation Reports / Updates
In February, conflict and insecurity made the operational environment in Somalia exceedingly difficult. Political tensions in Las Caanood culminated into armed conflict, leading to civilian deaths and displacement. The conflict between Al-Shabab, hereafter referred as the non-state armed group (NSAG), and the alliance of Somali security forces, local militias, and international security partners raged on several fronts. Additionally, the extended drought continued to affect ordinary Somalis' lives and livelihoods. 234,000 internal displacements, primarily due to conflict and drought, were recorded in February.
