Unknown men tossed a hand grenade into a house in Somalia’s south western town of Beledhawo near Kenyan border, injuring four people, residents said on Monday night.

It was the latest in a wave of violence since a peace agreement signed in Djibouti on Sunday.

The beleaguered was reported belonging to civilian family as the residents described “amazing” that attack on a family home.

Its yet unknown the groups/motives behind that attack on that house.

Beledhawo has been more peaceful than some other regions in the country, where frequent insurgent attacks targeting government troops and their Ethiopian military allies are blamed on an ousted Islamist group.

Residents told Shabelle that the injured victims were in serious condition.

The commissioner of the town Ahmed Mohamed told Shabelle radio that they continued investigation on that attack to track down the assailants.

The attack comes as conflict movements in the region where tribal militiamen fought in the last weeks.
