Somalia: Al Shabaab Declares It Began Hit And Run Attacks

Mogadishu — The Al shabaab fighters in Somalia have changed their battles against the transitional federal government and AMISOM forces into hit and run attacks, the group said in a statement on Sunday.

The movement launched several attacks on Somali forces and AU peacekeepers in Mogadishu for the last few days, the statement noted.

According to the al Qaeda linked group, during the hit and run attacks, Al shabaab has inflicted more fatal casualties on their adversaries.

The group has vowed they will continue launching such attacks against AU forces and Somali soldiers, saying they will use any tactical move in killing them.
