All-shabaab militants kill 3 soldiers

The African Union force known as AMISOM’s base was attacked on Thursday by Al-Shabaab militants resulting in the death of 3 soldiers. The attack was carried out by Al-Shabaab to avenge the death of its leader who was killed due to a US airstrike about four months ago. Moments after the attack, the Shabab group also claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attack happened at the Halane camp in Mogadishu at lunch time on the Christmas Day. Following the attack, five of the fighters were killed and three were captured. Since the Al-Shabaab leader, Ahmed Abdi Godane was killed in a US missile strike on Sept. 1 there has been a series of military setbacks for the group. The African-Union government has performed well as they have been able to reclaim about 70 percent of the territory that was lost to the insurgent group. Yesterday’s attack was the first after the Somalia lawmakers approved the appointment of Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke as the country’s new prime minister.

The AMISOM headquarters is a fortified structure located on the grounds of the Mogadishu airport which is also heavily guarded. Since 2007, there have been many troops deployed over the region for peacekeeping.
