Mogadishu, June 13 (QNA) - The Somali army announced today the killing of 10 Al-Shabab militants, affiliated to Al-Qaeda, in a military operation in the center of the country.
The commander of the Somali army, Brigadier General Odowaa Yusuf Rageh, said that his forces conducted a military operation in Hiran province in the center of the country, to hunt down the remnants of the Al-Shabaab movement, and prevent them from launching attacks against civilians and security forces, noting that the army has recently intensified its military operations against the remnants of the movement, and succeeded in retaking many villages in the south and center of the country.
On the first of this month, the Somali army announced the killing of four Al-Shabab militants in a military operation in the Lower Juba Governorate in the south of the country.
The African Union deploys nearly 22,000 soldiers, from Burundi, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti, in Somalia to assist government forces in its war against Al-Shabab, which has been grinding on for more than 10 years. (QNA)
