In a statement released last Saturday, the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONFL) said its attacks were launched across a broad front and had begun on November 10.

The ONLF said its forces entered the towns of Obolka, Hamaro, Higlaaley, Yucub, Gladiid, Boodhaano and Gunogabo, where government forces had deployed troops and positioned military hardware.
