An explosion which caused injuries and losses occurred last night in Kismayo, the provincial capital of Lower Jubba region and the seat of the Interim Jubba Administration.
The IED bomb was detonated by a remote control in Kismayo targeting troops loyal to the Interim Jubba Administration which manage the port town.
Residents in the city reported to Shabelle that they suspected casualties were sustained by the blast targeted at the soldiers despite specifying the precise numbers of fatalities.
Almost immediately after the tremor, a fleet of IJA soldiers arrived on scene and conducted a thorough search crackdown of the entire port town of Kismayo.
At last, officials of the Interim Jubba Administration have not spoken out regarding the IED explosion in Kismayo nor specified the numbers of fatalities caused by the blast.
