The Somali Ministry of Defense has launched an investigation into Saturday’s clash involving the Somali military commandos, known as the Danab, and Hirshabelle security forces near Jowhar airport.

The Speaker of Hirshabelle Parliament, Abdihakin Luqman, stated on Saturday night, Danab commandos forces had attacked a convoy escorting him as he was en route to Jowhar airport, which resulted in the death and injuries of the Hirshabelle Presidential guards.

The Ministry of Defense emphasized that once the investigation is completed, the soldiers responsible for the incident will be swiftly brought to justice.

Tensions have been escalating in Jowhar between the federal government and Hirshabelle authorities since Friday.
