In the southern region of Somalia, Somali forces kill 17 Al-Shabab terrorists.

According to officials, Somali security forces killed 17 al-Shabab terrorists and injured several others during security operations in the southern region on Wednesday.

The Somalia National Army (SNA) told Radio Mogadishu that the security operation, carried out by its special forces, Danab, also resulted in the destruction of nine al-Shabab hideouts in southern and southwestern states.

“In the past 24 hours, seventeen al-Shabab terrorists were killed and nine of their hideouts were destroyed in special security operations carried out by SNA commanders in Somalia’s Jubaland and Southwest states,” the radio reported.

The government forces had increased operations against al-Shabab, blaming them for sporadic attacks on AU and government key bases, including public places in Mogadishu and elsewhere across the country.

The increased operation also came ahead of the long-delayed presidential elections scheduled for Sunday in Mogadishu, the capital.

Al-Shabab militants opposed to the ongoing electoral process carried out a series of attacks targeting delegates in an attempt to disrupt the process. (Xinhua/NAN)
