AMISOM Casualties Increase as Mujahideen Conclude First Phase of Operations in Mogadishu
After more than a week since the Mujahideen declared a change in military tactics in Mogadishu’s frontline, the first phase of their operations has concluded effectively.
Mogadishu (14/08/2011). During this time, the Mujahideen have been luring the TFG & AMISOM forces and staging a series of carefully coordinated attacks that resulted in a high number of casualties among the ranks of the Ugandan and Burundian forces in Mogadishu.
This change in military tactics, as well as the increased mobility of the Mujahideen's forces in all of Mogadishu’s districts, will provide them with the ability to inflict maximum damage to the frustrated AMISOM & TFG troops whilst greatly minimizing the losses on the side of the Mujahideen.
On their part, the Mujahideen vow to continue and intensify their Jihad against the invading enemy at all cost and fully reaffirm that Somalia will not be governed according to the whims and desires of the western nations and their puppet regimes but only according the Islamic Shari’ah.
TFG = puppet Transitional Federal Government
AMISOM = African Union Mission to Somalia
