Somali forces kill 10 militants, injure 15

11 al-Shabab militants were on Wednesday, killed by Somali forces backed by a local militia group, Ma’awisley 15 other extremists were injured in Jowhar town in Somalia’s southern region of Middle Shabelle.

The commander of Somali forces in charge of 27th division, Salah Ya’qub, disclosed to newsmen that there was counter attack in Shimbirow village in Jowhar town after militants launched an attack on a base used by government-backed local militia.

They were, however, overpowered and repelled.

According to Ya’qub, “the allied forces managed to kill 11 militants and injured 15 others. Our forces are now running the base as of now”.

He noted that the forces were now conducting operations in the town pursuing the remnants of the militants who ran outside of the town. Local inhabitants said there was a fierce fight in the town.

A resident of the town, Jamila Elmi, said: “hooded men attacked the army’s base in the area and shortly after we heard the sound of mortar shells.”

The latest counter offensive came barely two days after government forces killed 20 militants injuring more than 30 others in another counter attack in Barire town in southern region of Lower Shabelle.
However, Al-Shabab also claimed victory from Tuesday’s attack saying its fighters briefly captured an army base in Shimbirow village and seized weapons and ammunitions from them.

The government forces had, so far, rescued 20 civilians who had been abducted by the militant group after an operation carried out in southern port town of Kismayo.

Military officials said the rescue operation was carried out in villages within the vicinity of Yontoy, north of Kismayo.

The al-Qaida militants had in recent time intensified their attacks on the army bases in Middle and Lower Shabelle regions after they lost many of their strong holds in those regions.
