Big blow to Al-Shabaab as army kills 12 militants in Somalia

MOGADISHU - Somali National Army (SNA) said Monday its forces killed 12 al-Shabab terrorists during security operations conducted in several locations in the past 24 hours in the Hiraan region, the central part of the country.

The SNA commanders told Radio Mogadishu that the operations were carried out near Qabdho village under the Mataban district of the Hiraan region as the military intensified operations against the extremist group in the region.

"During the operation, the Somali National Army destroyed al-Shabab bases where they used to extort money from the local people," the state-owned radio reported.
The government forces have intensified security operations against the al-Qaida allied terror group to liberate regions still under the control of the group.
