The United Nations Security Council has voted unanimously to endorse the African Union’s new transitional mission in Somalia.

The Security Council authorized it to take action against al-Qaeda and armed groups allied to the ISIL, as well as to conduct a phased handover of security responsibilities to Somalia’s government.

The vote replaces African Union Mission in Somalia, AMISOM, which has been in the Horn of Africa nation for 15 years trying to build lasting peace and security.

The resolution adopted by the council recognizes significant changes in the security situation since it authorized AMISOM in February 2007.
