Al shabaab raids military base near Qoryoley town

Al shabaab has launched an overnight daring raid on a army base manned by Somali government troops in the outskirts of the southern city of Qoryoley in Lower Shabelle region.

According to residents, a heavy battle has erupted following the attack on SNA base, and both sides have engaged in a deadly gunfight which left several soldiers and militants dead.

Al shabaab has been driven out of the major towns in the region in 2014 – 2015, but still capable of carrying sporadic ambush attacks against Somali and AMISOM troops’ bases and their military convoys.
