Answer
Dear Ammar

This is simply a portal frame solution. For an approximate analysis you will need to assume hinge in middle of each element and then to assume the shear being distributed among the columns so that the middle columns be subjected to a shear with intensity of 2 times of shear of side columns. After distribution of shears among columns the moments can be derived easily.
