Heavy Fighting Between Somali Military And Al-Shabaab Militants Erupts In Galgaduud

Heavy gunfight between Somali military and Al-Shabaab fighters on Sunday morning erupted in on the southern outskirts of the Galmudug capital Dhusamareb. The battle broke out after Al-Shabaab launched an attack on the Somali military in Tula-Hayow village along Dhusamareb-Eldhere road connecting Guriel and Dhusamreb according to locals. According to residents, both sides are exchanging heavy weaponry with people fleeing from their homes. In the past months, the Somali military heightened operations against Al-Shabaab militants in Southern and Central Somalia which led to the liberation of villages. Despite losing territories the militant group still carries out attacks targeting military bases, AMISOM, government officials and civilians. The group is fighting to overthrow the U.N backed government and establish Islamic rule based on their own interpretations.
