Jawil — The Ethiopian troops in Kala-beyrka intersection in Hiran region have started to search the traffic traveling between the Somali region in Ethiopia and central Somalia, witnesses told Shabelle radio on Monday.
Some of the drivers who travel on the street between the central regions of the Somalia and the Somali region in Ethiopia said that the Ethiopian troops in Kala-beyrka intersection about 30 kilometers north of Beledweyn town started to search the traffic including the lorries and passengers
"The Ethiopian troops in Kala-beyrka intersection search all the traffic including the Lorries for several hours. They bring all things down from the vehicles and then search the passengers. There are three places which the Ethiopian troops search the traffic and people," one of the drivers said.
The people and drivers in Beledweyn town expressed concern about the searching activities that the Ethiopian troops started in Kala-beyrka intersection in Jawil village in Hiran region.
The Ethiopian troops' searching action seems to be protecting the possibility to transport military supply to the guerillas fighting with the Ethiopia and attacks against them in the country.
