- Jubbaland’s Chief of General Staff Adan Gojar survived an attempt on his life after he was targeted in Shirkole military camp.
- Unknown militia men attacked the camp on Friday 18th September morning and detonated a bomb on the military camp before escaping.
- The morning attack also claimed two Jubbaland military men. The Chief of General Staff is said to be in stable condition.
There is an ongoing battle between Jubbaland administration and the Islamist militants, the Harakat Al Shabaab Al Mujahideen especially in the Gedo region. Gedo is currently under control of Jubbaland administration which declared autonomy from the Somali government. Both governments are fighting the HSM militant group.
Late august 2015, Jubbaland forces engaged HSM militants in fierce fire that left more than 40 militants dead. The forces are also holding dozens of the militants.
The 18th September attempt could be retaliation to the losses afflicted to the militant group by the Jubbaland forces.
