MOGADISHU - Somali National Army (SNA) said Friday its forces killed seven al-Shabab terrorists during security operations conducted Thursday in different locations in Kismayo district, the southern part of the country.

SNA commanders who led the operation told military radio that the militants were killed during security operations conducted in 11 villages in Jubaland State.

During the operations, the Army distributed water and food to the vulnerable families in the area, the SNA Radio reported.

This came hours after the troops killed three terrorists including a suicide bomber and seized a vehicle laden with explosives in Beer Xaani and Gabdhoole areas, about 40 km from Kismayo.

The government forces have intensified security operations against the extremist group across southern and central regions of Somalia as they strive to complete parliamentary elections after missing several self-imposed deadlines.
