Now Shabaabs attack Ethiopians

MOGADISHU, SOMALIA

Shabaab fighters attacked an Ethiopian army base in central Somalia early Thursday in the latest raid targeting foreign soldiers deployed as part of an African Union force in the country, rebels and local residents said.

The Al-Qaeda linked militants attacked the base in Halgan in Hiran region, the group said in a statement distributed on its Telegram messaging channel.

It claimed that fighters had killed “at least 43” Ethiopian soldiers, but this could not be verified independently.

Residents in the area close to Halgan said the attack began when a vehicle driven by a suicide bomber exploded, after which jihadist gunmen fought their way into the base.

“There was a huge blast and then heavy exchange of gunfire started,” said Osman Adan, a nearby resident.

Ethiopia’s suspected Liyu police also killed 40+ people in Ogaden just yesterday or the day before.

Condolences to the families and Ethiopians. Now its time to do a joint attack strategy in Somali. Anisom formation is too much defensive.

I hope they didn’t use an APC looted from the Kenyan attack, pole to the bereaved

The solution to Alshaabab elimination is infiltration using assets such that their attacks become traps. My condolences to the slain Soldiers
