Could the Mogadishu Bombing Turn the Tide against Al-Shabaab?

The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) published on 10 November 2017 a commentary titled "Mogadishu Blast Could Bring About Renewed Conflict Prevention" by Omar S. Mahmood and Gustavo de Carvalho, both with ISS.

The authors argue that the public anger surrounding the 14 October bombing in Mogadishu will contribute to pressure to step up the military fight against al-Shabaab. They emphasize, however, that a reactive response will limit the scope to deal proactively with the complex longer-term causes of terrorism and might result in a missed opportunity.
