Al-Shabaab attacks US-trained forces’ base in Somalia
... the Islamic version of the old Somali warlord...
fighters were reported to have attacked a Somali special forces’ base in Lower Shabelle region on Monday morning.
The attack occurred at K-60, where soldiers from the US-trained Danab unit are stationed.
The ambush has sparked hours-long shootout between the snuffies and Danab troops which inflicted casualties on both sides, according to the local residents.
It’s yet unclear the exact number of the fatalities.
The attack comes hours after a roadside kaboom blast on a convoy carrying Alfa Group forces in Bariire village, which is located about 60-km southwest of Mogadishu.
