The reports which are coming in from Elbuur district in Galgaduud region in central Somalia say that unknown heavy armed men have on Monday attacked the house of the military forces in Galgaduud region Colonel Mohamed Kariye Arale.
The bodyguards of the military commander fought back the attackers and according to the local residents in Elbuur district the combat lasted after 45 minutes.
There are possibilities of casualties of death and injuries from both sides, but we have no immediate confirmation.
There are no independent reports which would say who these attackers are, but since this commander is very often engaged in fight with Alshabab fighters’ maybe they are the ones.
