Danab forces libarete new areas in lower Shabele region
Somali forces on Tuesday carried out an operation against the al-Qaeda-affiliated terror group al-Shabaab in lower Shabelle, killing two al-Shabaab terrorists and liberating Jilib and Gendershe areas, said an army commander.
Osman Abdimalik Malim, a special forces (Danab) commander, told local media that Somali forces liberated the area in the Lower Shabelle province after a military operation in the region.
He added that the military operation was well planned to aim at eliminating the presence of Al-Shabaab militants in the region.
He said that the operation will continue until the group is wiped out of the region.
The capture of the areas adds to several other villages and towns liberated by Somali and African Union forces in the Lower Shabelle which has remained a major stronghold of Al-Shabaab.
