Somali soldiers have discovered that the government organization Hamdeen from Qatar, with the help of the Framajo system, has recruited thousands of poor young Somalis to serve in the army of the small but increasingly dangerous emirate. Some sources in the Somali army have also said: “They exploit poor young people by deceiving them: they promise that they will receive a salary of $ 3,000 per month and that once they reach Doha, they will earn even more.”
A Somali soldier added that more than 400 Somali soldiers said they want to join the Qatari army.
“They ask young Somalis to join the army to carry out useful missions to the Qatar regime and it is unacceptable to us.” The Somali soldier also said that hundreds of young people are under heavy pressure and are subjected to psychological torture during the training period in Qatar, which exceeds eight months. He also stressed that the Qatari regime is responsible for the recent and increasingly frequent terrorist attacks that have taken place in Somalia and added that Doha continues to recruit unemployed young people to turn them into terrorists.
“Qatar and Iran are one of the main causes of our country’s crises, why are they asking us to die for their terrorism and their expansionist goals?”
