by Mohamed Abdi Farah from SomaliNet

As the nightly insurgency attacks continue to escalate in the Somalia capital Mogadishu, the local militants linked with the defeated Islamist movement ambushed a government troops post in southwest of the city mid last night, local security official said on Sunday. General Abdiwahid Mohamed Hussein, a Somali police spokesman told Somalinet this morning the forces repelled a group of armed militant who attacked their positions in former stitching factory and former dairy factory ... Meanwhile, the Ethiopian and Somali forces stopped all the public and private vehicles to use the main Industry road in the capital for the third day where the allied troops faced roadside bombings ... Some villages of Huriwa and Yaqshid where the government believed as the safe haven of what it called ‘the terror groups’ were already abandoned due the continuing military operations against the Islamist supporters.
