Sources said the fighting erupted when ASWJ fighters mounting on pickups launched an attack on Al-Shabaab bases in the outskirts of El-Bur town, killing at least 60 militants.
“The fighting broke out at about 9:00 am local time, and after hours of fighting our forces seized the villages near El-Bur district. Three of our fighters were killed,” ASWJ official who asked anonymity, told Keydmedia English News on the phone.
No Al shabab official could immediately reach for comments.
El-Bur town has been a focal point of fighting between ASWJ and Al-Shabaab in recent weeks, as Al-Shabaab fighters attempt to seize control of Galgudud from the Ahlu Sunna.
