SNA Kills 10 Al-Shabaab Fighters In Joint Operation
Somali National Army (SNA) in collaboration with Jubaland state regional forces have killed 10 Al-Shabaab militants and seized six others including their top commanders in an operation in Jamame town near Kismayo in the southern Lower Juba. According to Somali National Army (SNA), the forces captured several others alive during the joint military Operation in the environs of town near Kismayo port city. ''Jubbaland Forces have arrested 6 Al-Shabaab Militants and killed 10 others in Jamame after planned operations,'' the Somali military radio said in a Facebook post. The operation comes barely three days after two soldiers were killed and another wounded when gunmen opened fire on a vehicle en route to Dhusamareb town today. The soldiers who were attacked were drawn from the Somali military, particularly the Gorgor unit. In recent days, SNA forces have intensified operations against Shabab militants in the southern regions where militants hide, conducting ambushes and planting landmines.
