When and Where?

This operation started in 1992 when Operation Provide Relief sent in humanitarian relief for the people of Somalia.

How?

A Somalian military ran by Aidid started intercepting the humanitarian relief provided by Operation Provide Relief. UN forces began to send in troops to help assure that the packages were being delivered and to protect the civilians.

Why?

Operation Restore Hope began because of Somalian tribes hijacking relief items meant for civilians and to restore and secure trade routes within Somalia. Troops remained to promote an idea called "Nation Building" which was meant to restore order.
