Security Forces Successfully Prevent A Car Bomb Attack In Mahas District

Tuesday September 5, 2023

A thwarted car bomb attack took place on the outskirts of the Mahas district in the Hiiraan region on Tuesday. Thanks to the combined efforts of government forces and Ethiopian troops serving under the African Union ATMIS mission, the explosion failed to cause any casualties. So far, no group has come forward to claim responsibility for the incident.

According to security officials, they had prior knowledge of the car bomb, which granted them the ability to prevent the explosion from occurring. It is worth noting that President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud was addressing the army forces when this attempted attack took place.

This incident coincided with President Hassan Sheikh’s leadership of a military campaign in the Mahas district. The primary objective of this operation is to eradicate the presence of the Shabab group.
