al Shabaab arrest Hizbul Islam -Wadana Street Fighting

MOGADISHU (Mareeg)—Al Shabaab militants have arrested three Hizbul Islam officials in Mogadishu on Monday accusing of being behind roadside bomb that targeted al Shabaab officials. Fu’aad Mohamed Qalaf and other foreign al Shabaab official survived a landmine that exploded a car they were traveling Bar Ubah neighborhood near Bakaro market in Mogadishu on Sunday evening. Residents say al Shabaab captured the officials from Bakaro market in Mogadishu saying they will bring before a court.

Sporadic fighting between the two groups started in Wadnaha Street in Mogadishu after the incident. Residents in Mogadishu have expressed concern about the new tension between the two allied groups who have been jointly fighting against the Somali government since May last year. If heavy between al Shabaab and Hizbul Islam starts in Mogadishu it will be a chance to Somali fragile government which is preparing a big offensive against the rebel groups.
