Landmine blast wounds government soldier in Mogadishu


Tuesday August 1, 2023

Mogadishu (HOL) - At least one government soldier was wounded in a landmine explosion in the Bulahubey neighbourhood of Mogadishu on Tuesday morning.

According to the residents, the explosion targeted a vehicle carrying Somali government soldiers. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but it is worth noting that al-Shabab is known to stage such attacks against government forces.

The Wadajir district administration has not yet commented on the explosion.

Since August, government forces have been making significant progress against the militants, launching a major Somali-led campaign against al-Shabaab. This offensive has been regarded as the most effective in countering the terror group in the past 15 years.
