Somali Army Kill 50 Al-Shabaab Terrorists

A planned military operation against terrorists in the Middle Shabelle region has gotten at least 50 al-Shabab militants, the Somali military has confirmed.

In a statement issued by Somalia’s national army command Saturday, it says the army’s strategic operation against the militants took place in Darul-nicim, Middle Shabelle province.

The town of Adan Yabal, 217 kilometres north of the capital, Mogadishu, has witnessed heightened military activity in the last three weeks.

 

“The Somali National Army, with the help of local people, have killed around 50 Khawarij in an operation in the village of Darul-Nicim in the Middle Shabelle region and other villages under Adan Yabal district,” the army Tweeted.

 

The Somali government  which now designates the terrorist group as ‘Khawarij’ say the operation comes a day after Somalia’s deputy information minister, Abdirahman Yusuf Omar Al-adala, said the army had killed at least 88 al-Shabab fighters in the same province within 2 days.

 

Governor of Somalia’s central region of Hiran, Ali Jeyte Osman also pledged $30,000 bounty to any al-Shabab fighter who kills al-Shabab spokesperson Ali Mohamud Rage, known as Ali Dhere.

Osman spoke after visiting several villages on the outskirts of the central town of Beledweyne, the provincial capital of Hiran region. He said the government would hand a $10,000 reward for every al-Shabab militant killed.

 

The Somali military has recaptured a large part of the central states of Galmudug and Hirshabelle from the militant group. Since 2007, the Horn of Africa nation has been fighting al-Shabab.

Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, who was re-elected earlier this year, had announced total war against the al-Shabab terrorist group.
