Amisom capture 4 locations from Al-Shabaab in Somalia

16 August 2016, 08:14

Mogadishu - Somali National Army (SNA) backed by Africa Union peacekeeping mission (AMISOM) on Monday captured four locations near Bardhere town in southern Somalia's Gedo region from Al-Shabaab militant group.

Somali Army Commander in the area, Osman Sheikh, told journalists in Mogadishu that the operation was aimed at liberating key areas where the militants were hiding and planning terrorist activities in the region.

"SNA's 9th Division carried out the operation against militants in Matano, Anole, Tubako and Qutaley locations about 30kms south of Bardhere town. We are now in full control of all the four regions. However, the terrorists escaped during the operation but we shall pursue them," Osman said.

The Al-Shabaab militant has often carried out road side attacks against AU and Somali government administration in the region.
