There were also explosions heard inside the hotel. According to reports, nine people were injured in the attack. They were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Terrorist hideouts remain at the Hayat Hotel. Terrorists and security personnel are exchanging heavy gunfire. “Two vehicle explosives were aimed at the Hotel Hayat.

Terrorists from Al-Shabaab targeted the Hayat Hotel in Mogadishu because legislators and other government leaders frequently went there. Notably, the terror organization Al-Shabaab, which is affiliated with Al-Qaeda, has spent the last ten years attempting to overthrow the Somali government. The hotel building was noticed to be emitting smoke. It was Somalia’s first significant attack since President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud assumed office in May this year.

At least 13 Somali militants are said to have been killed by an American airstrike on Sunday. The US Africa Command verified the information. An airstrike was conducted to assist the Somali military. The US also conducted three airstrikes on the Al-Shabaab terrorist organisation last week. During those airstrikes, four members of the gang were killed.
