Mogadishu, September 21 (QNA) - The Somali army announced Wednesday that it has succeeded in driving out most of Somalia's central Hiran region from al-Shabab movement affiliated with 'Al-Qaeda' Major General Mohamed Tahlil Bihi, commander of the ground forces of the Somali army, said in statements carried by the Somali News Agency (SONNA) today, that the 'Al-Shabab' movement has been driven out from most areas and districts of the Hiran region, while military operations are currently being conducted against the armed elements in the areas of Galguduud region.

Major General Bihi indicated that the Somali army forces, in cooperation with the local population, succeeded in eliminating more than 127 members of the movement.

On August 23, Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud renewed the government's determination to liquidate the 'Al-Shabab' movement, which is linked to 'Al-Qaeda' militarily, ideologically and economically.

Even after a decade, the Somali "Al-Shabab" movement still poses a security threat to Mogadishu, against which it is engaged in battle, in light of the fact that the movement has claimed many attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians and security personnel.
