Sources said the militants stormed a Somali National Army based located in Bal’aad town sparking an hour long battle.

Military sources confirmed the death of three soldiers but there was no further information of injuries.

Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the Sunday evening attack. This adds to increasing offensives by the militant group targeting military and civilians.

The group detonated a car bomb last week in neighboring Lafoole killing at least four people among them Turkish engineers constructing  the Mogadishu- Afgooye road.
