Somali soldiers have revealed the exploitative face of the Hamadein regime, saying that Qatar is supporting Framajo’s regime by recruiting thousands of poor Somali youth to serve in the Qatari army, pointing out that more than 400 Somali soldiers have refused to serve in the army.
In a letter to their fellows back home, soldiers said in a video that circulated on Thursday that recruitment operations in the Qatari army, which is conducted through intermediaries from Framajo’s government, involves fraud and trafficking in young people’s lives.
"They exploit poor youth by deluding them to believe they will earn $3,000 a month. After arriving in Doha, they found that their salaries didn’t exceed 3,000 Qatari riyals".
A Somali soldier said that more than 400 Somalis had declared their rebellion against the Qatari army, refusing to work among its ranks. "They ask the Somali youth to be part of the army to carry out the Qatari regime’s adventures, which is unacceptable to us," he said.
He added that hundreds of young people were under pressure and psychological torture during the eight-month training period in Qatar. The Qatari regime was responsible for recent terrorist attacks in Somalia and Doha recruited young unemployed people to become terrorists.
