The Attack On The Capital City

Two heavy explosions and subsequent gunshots were recently heard near the Zoobe intersection in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, according to reports from Media.

Initial reports received by Dalka Times say that the Al-Shabaab group launched an attack on the Ministry of Education Center in the area of Zoobe street, and an armed gunman from this group went inside.

One explosion was heard for the first time, but a few minutes later another strong explosion occurred in the same place, which was said to be an explosion connected to the car that the attackers were in.

Heavy gunfire can be heard inside the center between the government forces and the attackers.

It is feared that there will be loss of life and injuries considering the intensity of the explosions, which were heard in many parts of the capital.
