    Turkey is set to open its first military base in Africa in which Turkish military officers will train Somalian soldiers and troops from other African countries to fight against Al-Shabaab terrorist organization, military sources said on Monday.

    The base in the African Horn, which has been approved by the United Nations, will be Turkey's second military base abroad and will be set up in capital Mogadishu.

    With the agreement between the Turkish and Somali governments, over 1,500 Somali troops will be trained by 200 Turkish military officers.
