Kismayo,Somalia ( DIPLOMAT.SO) – According to Radio Shabelle in Mogadishu , At least six unarmed civilians were wounded in over night Al shabaab mortar fire on the southern coastal city of Kismayo, located around 500 kilometers south of Mogadishu, Somali capital.

The mortar rounds hit Gulwade and Farjano villages in Kismayo, where the six civilians have been killed after their houses struck by mortar shells, according to witnesses.

The mortars were fired from undisclosed location outside the town by Al shabaab fighters who are fighting to unseat the UN-backed federal government of Somalia.

The city has been under Al shabaab control for almost 7 years before Somali and Kenyan troops pushed the militants of the strategic town in Lower Juba province following joint offensive.
