Explosion kills 5 Djibouti soldiers in Somalia as convoy comes under attack

Beletweyneh, Sept. 17, 2019 (hornnews24) – At least 5 Djibouti soldiers have been killed and almost ten others were wounded as Djibouti military convoy came under attack on Tuesday in Somalia.

According to the initial reports at least one armoured military vehicle was also annihilated in the blast which occurred between Jalalaksi and Buloburdeh towns of the Hiran region.

Local residents have confirmed that a vehicle struck a remote controlled land mine and exploded.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but Al-Qaida-linked group, Alshabaab, has carried out similar attacks against the foreign forces in Somalia.

Thousands of foreign troops from African nations are currently in Somalia to protect the weak Somali government against the offensives of the powerful islamists.

Alshabab fights for imposing Islamic sharia law on Somalia, a predominantly Islamic country, which has chosen human written constitutional laws instead the Islamic sharia.
