ISIL branch in Somalia claims IED blast in Mogadishu

The Islamic State branch in Somalia has claimed credit for a bomb attack in Mogadishu which claimed the lives of at least four Somali soldiers.

A statement carried out ISIL’s mouthpiece channel, Amaq News Agency said the landmine blast struck security forces’ convoy in the capital’s northern Deynile district last weekend.

The Pro-Islamic State faction who has a strong presence in Puntland, northeast of Somalia occasionally conduct sporadic attacks in the south of the capital, mainly in Mogadishu.

The regions in southern Somalia have been plagued by violence and battles between Federal government and Al Shabaab, the Al Qaeda-linked militant group.
