Al shabaab fires mortars at Ethiopian military base
Al shabaab fighters have fired several mortar shells at an Ethiopian military base in Hiiraan region of central Somalia on Sunday mid night, according to local residents.
The mortar attack happened at El Ali area, after Al shabaab militants raided last night Ethiopian forces of AMISOM contingent bases, according to the area chief Yarow Abikar.
The Somali official said some of the mortar rounds have landed into the Ethiopian army base, and caused unspecified number of casualty on the AU soldiers in central Somalia.
Al shabaab did not comment on the mortar attack.
