Witnesses in Baidoa town told Keydmedia English News via phone that the Ethiopian troops and TFG forces with their heavy weapons and tanks have moved towards Bur-hakabo district, 30 kilometers from Baidoa.

Reports say that People of that district fear that fighting can break out any time as the militant group of Al-Shabaab are intensifying their defensive blocks around Bur-hakabo district to protect troops from entering it.

“The Ethiopian troops with tanks moved towards Bur-Hakaba and it’s not known when they will enter the stronghold town,” an official who declined to be identified told Keydmedia English News because he was not authorized to comment to the Media.
