Upon the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and follow up of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, a number of Somalis injured in the terrorist attack on a Mogadishu Hotel in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, arrived here yesterday evening.

The attack claimed the lives of 11 people, and left many others injured.

The injured were received at the airport by UAE Ambassador to Somalia Mohammed Ahmed Osman Al Hammadi, Somali Ambassador to UAE Abdelkadir Sheikhey Mohammed Al-Hatimi and a number of UAE health officials. The ambulances were ready to pick up and rush the injured to the hospitals, which were already prepared to receive them.

Al Hammadi said the injured were admitted to a number of UAE hospitals, adding that six of them were rushed to the Zayed Military Hospital, three to Al Mafraq and three others were referred to Al Ain Hospital to receive treatment.

"The move reflects the UAE's solidarity with the people of Somalia in the face of terrorism and extremism," he said, noting that the arrival of 12 injured Somalis and four companions, comes within the framework of humanitarian initiative of the UAE leadership of Sheikh Khalifa, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, who have been backing Somalia since the crisis begun in that Horn of Africa nation.

On his part, Al Hatimi thanked the UAE leadership for its continuous support to the people of Somalia, saying, "This support is not new and had started during the days of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Somalis will never forget these generosities of the UAE." Meanwhile, the injured commended the stance of the UAE, referring to the humanitarian gesture of the UAE President. They wished the UAE President and Emirati people well.

They also expressed their satisfaction at having arrived in the UAE, where they will receive better care at the hospitals. – Emirates News Agency, WAM –
