HUDUR, Somalia (Horn Observer) The Somali National Army and special forces for the South Western State of Somalia have jointly succeeded in opening the access routes of the Southern Somalia town of Hudur of Bakool region, officials said.

"More than 20 trucks owned by business people have already arrived the town” Somali military officials said.

The residents of Hudur have warmly welcomed the joint operation that opened the access roads to and from the town of Hudur.

"We are relieved to have these roads opened.” Ali Abdi, a resident in the town of Hudur said, "Now we can travel and send our commodities to the other towns of Somalia for business.”

The Shabab, the militant organization affiliated to Alqaeda have besieged the town of Hudur and other towns in Souther Somalia after the Somali armed forces supported by the AMISOM troops liberated the areas.  In several occasion Al Shabaab attacked trucks owned by the business people en-route to Hudur.


Recently senior commanders of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) have concluded a three-day security meeting in Mogadishu, in which they reviewed ongoing operations and discussed an upcoming reorganization of troops pending the commencement of a draw down, according to a statement from the AU Mission in Somalia. 

The meeting acknowledged the work being done by the military to clear and secure Main Supply Routes to enable free movement of humanitarian supplies and people, across south central Somalia, and committed to continue with the clearance explosive devices on the routes.

"(Clearing) the MSRs is very important as the lives of the Somalis and of AMISOM are at stake,” said the Lt. Gen. Osman Noor Soubagleh, who chaired the meetings. "If we open the MSRs, this will ensure that the business of the Somalis between the various towns will be active, so I ask you to open the MSRs; this is an obligation,” he added.
