“Turkey will maintain its strong solidarity with the Government and the brotherly people of Somalia in the wake of terrorist attacks targeting stability in Somalia,” the statement added.

On Feb. 23, the first car bomb exploded near the Somalia presidential palace followed by a gun battle between security forces and terrorist al-Shabaab attackers, according to state media.
