Witnesses say that hundreds of gun-toting al-Shabab fighters have moved back into central Somali towns abandoned over the last week by Ethiopian troops. At the same time many foreigners are abandoning the Eritrean capital in fear of the eventual Ethiopian Attack to topple the main allay of Alshabab Isasias Afwerki from his strong hold.
Many Witnesses say that hundreds of gun-toting Al-Shabab fighters have moved back into central Somali towns abandoned over the last week by Ethiopian troops as the same time from Asmara many of the Diasporas is contacted by their families at home that the Europeans residents are packing and we are informed by our local reporter
Ali Muhyadin, a resident in the town of El-bur, said Tuesday that residents woke up on Sunday and found that Ethiopian troops had abandoned their bases, while in Asmara the allied of Alshabab the Europeans are precipitating to leave.
Residents said al-Shabab fighters then beheaded two men accused of collaborating with the Ethiopians and dumped their headless bodies in town.
Al-Shabab was reported to have returned to two other towns – Mahas and Wabho – after Ethiopian troops left.
The pretext is reported by the Ethiopian that their dictator has recently promised that Ethiopian forces would leave Somalia soon but the capital of Eritrea the westerns are following closely the conflict since mid may. Ethiopian forces still occupy the larger towns of Baidoa and Beledweyne in Somalia and Badme the border city between two belligerent brothers in arm- Zenawie & Afwerki. Even the former troop have occupied more territories inside Eritrea since the last accrochage . Soon the hidden conflict will come to light when the international media turns its attention, today it seems a forgotten conflict in front of Iraq and Afghanistan.
