Monday, July 09, 2012
Al-Shabaab attacked Somali Transitional Federal Government military positions in the central Somalia city of Beledweyne on Sunday (July 8th), Somalia's Shabelle Media Network reported.
"The al-Shabaab agents have attacked the city with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades and the government forces with Ethiopian and Djibouti troops repelled the attack and warded the area from fighters," said Somali military officer Abukar Ibrahim Dhakad.
Three people from both sides were killed in the clash, he said. Al-Shabaab has yet to comment on the incident.
Somali troops took Beledweyne from al-Shabaab in December 2011.
