Somali army kills 7 al-Shabab militants in central region

Mogadishu/Xinhua/UNI: Somali National Army (SNA) on Tuesday killed seven al-Shabab extremists in an operation in the central region of Hiran, a military commander said.

Mohamud Hassan Ibrahim, commander of SNA's 22 Unit section 27, told reporters that government forces conducted an operation inflicting casualties on the militants.

The commander said the operation was a planned one, aimed at destroying the terrorist group.

The latest incident came barely a day after Jubaland forces killed four al-Shabab extremists in a clash in Dhobley town in the country's southern region of Lower Juba.

The Somali forces backed by African Union Mission in Somalia have intensified operations against al-Shabab extremists in central and southern regions, but the militants still hold swathes of rural areas in those regions conducting ambushes and planting land mines.
