Mogadishu 25, Dec.06 ( Sh.M.Network) – The Islamic Courts Union has admitted parts of central Somalia under their control were seized by the Ethiopian military troops.
Sheik Abdirahman Jinikow, the Islamic Courts assistant chairman, said their fighters retreated from Baledweyn, about 335 km (215 miles) away from the capital Mogadishu and Buluburte, 219 (140 miles) away from Mogadishu.
Witnesses said some of the former defeated US backed warlords have delivered speeches to the civilian population in Baledweyn and Buluburte.
The news comes as an Ethiopian fighter jet dropped two bombs at the main airport of the capital early Monday morning. Sheik Abdirahman Aden, the general director of the airport, has told Shabelle Radio in Mogadishu that one person was injured. The bombs struck the runway and the terminal of the airport.
Ethiopian primes minister Males Zenawi said on Sunday the Ethiopian military was at war with Somalia’s Islamist movements and would continue until the mission was completed.
The fighting between the Ethiopian military forces and Somalia’s ICU raged for the seventh day, with Islamists said they killed hundreds of Ethiopian troops in the duels in Daynunay and Idaale that are quite close to the interim government capital of Baidoa, southern Somalia.
The Ethiopian premier said a secret meeting between the ICU officials and Ethiopian government officials, which took place in the Emirates, ended in failure. He said the Ethiopian government was determined to be engaged in war with the Islamic Courts.
The transitional government that was formed in Kenya after two years of negotiations between Somalia’s warlords is largely dependent on the Ethiopian military forces in Baidoa.
Sheik Abdirahman Jinikow, Islamic Courts spokesperson, called on the people in the capital to take part in a huge demonstration that would take place in the football stadium on Tuesday to protest against the Ethiopian invasion.
The Islamic Courts presented pictures showing number of Ethiopian soldiers killed in the fight around Idaale, 70 km (45 miles) southwest of Baidoa, which is 245 km (155 miles) away from the capital Mogadishu.
