Somali Army Forces Kill 28 al-Shabab Militants in Airstrike

International partners backed Somali army forces, killing 28 al-Shabab militants in an airstrike in a rural area on the border between the Galgadud and Middle Shabelle regions on Tuesday night.

Targeting the Hawal Qorey and Rage Barir areas, the airstrike struck where members of the group, along with their military and cargo vehicles, were stationed.

Advertisements highlighted a senior military commander, Abdinur Yusuf Qadaye, stating that the targeted militants were planning attacks on army positions and local communities. The government forces and their international partners, however, prevented the attack.

Operations against the al-Shabab group remain ongoing in the Galgadud and Middle Shabelle regions, with increased efforts from both ground and air forces by the army, local people, and international allies.

A few days prior to the new attack, the commander of the 8th Battalion of the 60th Division of the Somali National Army (SNA), Major Mohamed Nur Sheegow, also known as Mohamed Dheere, and seven SNA soldiers were killed in a roadside explosion in the Bay region of southwest Somalia.

According to a military official who declined to be named, at least 11 other soldiers were wounded in the explosion.
