Al Shabaab raid “thwarted” at Ethiopian base in Somalia

Ethiopian troops stationed in Dollo town near the Ethiopian border foiled an attack by Al Shabaab militants on their base on Wednesday morning, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
The Ministry said in a statement that the Ethiopian National Defense Forces “stopped the attackers in their tracks before they could wreak havoc.”
The ministry said the ENDF “neutralized suicide bombers and destroyed weapons” during the confrontation with Al Shabaab.
The attack comes less than two weeks after Al Shabaab militants killed 54 Ugandan soldiers in an assault on their base in Somalia.
