Al-Shabab Militants Killed In Air Strikes In Kismayo

American warplanes operating under the government order launched air strikes in Berhani area in Kismayo last night. The operation which took place at around 6:00 pm targeted an Al-Shabab base in the area. Commander of the 43rd battalion of the Somali National Army General Ismail Sahardid told a radio station owned by armed forces that the warplanes hit the militants’ base at a time when there was a meeting going on between Al-Shabab officials in the area. Two senior Al-Shabab officials (a leader of a group who carries out assassinations in the town and a leader of the revenue collectors) and up to 12 other members were killed in the strike. General Sahardid said that they will soon publish the names and photos of all the militants killed in the strike. He also added that the militants had moved out of the Berhani area.
