Hussein Hassan Jodah, commander of SNA’s 5th Unit division 27, said the military operation was carried out in al-Shabab areas in Bulo-Burte district.

Jodah told Radio Mogadishu that the army also destroyed al-Shabab bases or hideouts which the militants have been using to launch attacks on the locals.

He said the latest operation came after the militant group launched a cowardly attack on Bulo-Burte district, adding that the army inflicted heavy casualties on the terrorist group.

The government forces have recently intensified operations against Al-Shabaab extremists in central and southern regions where the militants are still hiding in rural areas, conducting ambushes and planting land mines.
