Somali Govt dispatches troops to Hiran to join war on Al-Shabaab
Saraakiil sare iyo askar katirsan Ciidamada dowladda Soomaaliya ayaa lagu dilay dagaalka, waxaana jira dhaawacyo badan oo labada dhinac gaarey.
Galmudug information ministry said that the combined troops are in full control of Guriel, where both sides engaged in heavy battles that left at least 120 people, mostly soldiers dead while hundreds wounded.
Shacabka magaaladda Guriceel ayaa farta ku haya wadnaha, waxayna noqdeen dareen ku joog kadib markii ay fashilmeen waan-waantii socotay.
Fiqi said Qoor-Qoor chose the path of war instead of peace and dialogue with the armed Sufi group - Ahlu Sunna Waljama'a [ASWJ], which is regaining territory in Galmudug.
Waxuu sheegay in Galmudug lagu soo daabulay Ciidamo laga keenay Muqdisho, oo aan Galmudug ka amar qaadan kuwaasoo loo diyaariyay inay duulaan ku qaadaan Ahlu Sunna.
Galmudug state is facing numerous challenges, including political and security as a local armed Sufi group took arms to regain control of Galgadud.
ASWJ regain control of three main towns in Galmudug from Somali troops without battle, a move that the Sufi group aims to return to power.
Madaxweyne Qoor-Qoor ayaa diiday inuu la fariisto Ahlu Sunna, kadib markii ay kasoo baxeen Guriceel, oo dagaal qaraar kula galeen bishii lasoo dhaafey.
Galmudug ayaa isku diyaarinaysa doorashadda kuraasta ugu horeysa ee Gollaha Shacabka, oo la filayo inay maalmaha soo aadan Dhuusamareeb ka dhacdo.
Dagaalka markii uu dhamaadey ma jirin miino baaris la sameeyay, waxaana loo faxay shacabka inay dib ugu soo laabtaan guryahooda.
The minister’s remarks come after the spiritual leader of ASWJ Moalim Mohamud has accused Galmudug and the Somali Government of plotting an offensive against Guriel in Galgadud last month.
For his part, a member of the outgoing Somali parliament Mahad Salad said ASWJ left Guriel city at the request of the local business community, rejecting claims that Galmudug extended an olive branch to them.
