Sources said the militants stormed a Somali National Army based located in Bal’aad town sparking an hour long battle.
MOGADISHU (HOL) - Three Somali army soldiers were killed Sunday evening in an ambush at their base in Middle Shabelle region.
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.
