Somalia military retake area from Al Shabaab in Hiran regionSomalia military forces have managed to liberate remote districts from the grip of Al Shabaab militants in Central Somalia, an army official has said.
In a major military operation launched on Tuesday, Somalia forces captured small districts close to the Bulo-burte district, which is some 200 km north of the capital Mogadishu.
‘’ We kicked out the enemies of peace from Mubarak, El-Ba’ad and Jameo districts and killed eleven of them…. The operations will continue until we take control all over the region,’’ he said.
A Somali army official, Abdullahi Barre Ismael told local media that they killed 11 militants during the operation and liberated three districts controlled by the insurgents.
Al Shabaab was pushed out from Bulo-burte last year by AMISOM and Somalia troops, but it had put the town under siege for more than six months.
