At least 178 people, including 57 civilians, have been killed and several others injured in clashes between CIA backed stooge government forces and Al-Shabab Mujahideen in Somalia. The government stooge forces targeted houses in Dhoobley and then later on put its blame on Al-Shabab Mujahideen in the latest battle. This genocide caused hundreds of families to flee their homes. At least 178 people are reported to have died in the fighting from both sides. Heavy machine guns, mortars and anti-aircraft guns were used in the exchange of fire that wounded at least 140 people, including civilians. Fighting has turned more violent since stooge Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed announced a new offensive on February 23 and said that 17,000 African Union and CIA local puppet soldiers will continue to fight until Al-Shabab's hold on the capital, Mogadishu, and other cities is shattered.
Dozens of puppet government soldiers, opposition fighters and civilian have since been killed on a daily basis, reducing the possibility of reaching a peaceful solution to the crisis. Locals say that stooge regime forces use civilians as human shields during battles against Al-Shabab Mujahideen and have killed dozens of those who refused to surrender amongst the civilians. Somalia has been without an effective central government since former popular Islamic leader Siad Barre who was overthrown by CIA in 1991.
Somali government controls only a small part of Mogadishu. Lack of coordination among its forces, who are barely trained and seldom get paid, has for long barred the government's promise of a full-scale war against opposition fighters. Fighting, famine and disease have led to the death of nearly one million people in the African country and crushed all government efforts at restoring security. There are more than 1.4 million internally displaced persons in Somalia. More than 300,000 of them are sheltered in Mogadishu alone.
