  Operation Restore Hope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United Nations intervention in Somalia (code-named Operation Restore Hope) was a United Nations–sanctioned United States military operation from December 3, 1992 to May 4, 1993.
The operation planned to avert a growing humanitarian disaster in the increasingly lawless Republic of Somalia, which was suffering from severe famine, general chaos, and domination by a number of warlords following the collapse of Siad Barre's Marxist government.
The hunt for Aidid and his lieutenants then began, leading to the Battle of Mogadishu, resulting in - according to U.S. estimates - the death of 500-1000 Somalian millitia and civilians, the death of 18 American soldiers, and 73 were wounded, and the death of one Malaysian soldier.
