Somalia: Al-Shabaab militants clash with Jubaland Regional Forces in Gedo


At least three people died in the tension-prone Gedo on Wednesday after fierce clashes between Jubaland Regional Forces and the al-Shabaab militants, reports indicate, in the fight that lasted for a couple of hours.

Five others were critically injured during the battle and have since been taken to hospitals, officials said, but the al-Shabaab militants who were arrested are set to be presented to authorities for trial over war crimes in the Gedo region.

Officials said the fighting broke out when dozens of al-Shabaab militants raided a Jubaland security base in El-Wak town near the Kenya-Somalia border, leading to a gunfight between the two sides, which lasted for a couple of hours.

The militants surrounded the base and started firing indiscriminately, but they were repulsed and finally subdued. The casualties were mainly al-Shabaab militants but there were about three Jubaland soldiers who were critically injured.
