Somalia: Fighting Erupts At Hiliwaa District

Alshabaab and government troops backed by AMISOM clashed at Hiliwaa District last night.

The fighting erupted at a base manned by AMISOM and the government troops. The base is at the Suuqa Xoolaha Area of Hiliwaa District. This followed after Alshabaab militants attacked the base. The fighting was going on for almost one hour. So far, two civilians are known to have been injured. The casualties of each of the parties that fought are not known. Fightings are recurrent in that neighbourhood and now residents can hardly withstand them.

Neither the government troops nor Alshabaab spoke about the fighting yet.
