Government Troops Retreat from Critical Hawadley District in Middle Shabelle Province

Jowhar (AX) – On Wednesday, troops and local militias evacuated the neighborhood of Hawadley in the Middle Shabelle region. This locale, freed from al-Shabab’s grip last year, holds strategic value along the Shabelle River.

Al-Shabab militants have set up camp on the fringes of the village, aiming to seize the prize.

In recent hours, these insurgents have ramped up operations in the villages of Shanlow, Dhagaxow, and Farbaraki, all near Hawadley.

Hawadley residents dread an imminent skirmish between the rebels and government soldiers in their neighborhood.
