Somalia's National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) has taken decisive action by shutting down 14 news websites, accusing them of propagating the ideology and news of the al-Shabab militant group. This move comes hot on the heels of NISA's successful closure of 20 WhatsApp groups, which were allegedly operated by al-Shabab for purposes of extortion and intimidation.


While the Somali government had previously imposed access restrictions on al-Shabaab websites within the country, this recent operation marks a more comprehensive approach, resulting in the complete shutdown of the targeted sites.

The blocked websites were identified as key platforms utilized by the al-Shabaab group for disseminating their news and influencing public opinion.

NISA provided insight into the operation, stating, "This comprehensive effort, involving the systematic collection of websites, their thorough investigation, identification of registered owners, and the ultimate closure, has been underway for the past few months, leading to the removal of these websites registered over several years."

List of Blocked Sites:

www.somalimemo.com
www.amiirnuur.com
www.calamada.com
www.shahadanews.com

The Somali government aims to disrupt al-Shabab's communication channels and financial transactions, aligning with their commitment to a comprehensive "total war" against the group, which has long-held control over parts of the country and orchestrated attacks in the capital, Mogadishu.
