Somali military says seven militants killed in raids

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Somali government forces have raided militant hideouts in two different planned military operations in Al-Shabaab strongholds in the country's southern Lower Shabelle region, officials said.

The SNA - Somali National Army soldiers have clashed with Al-Shabaab militants as they conducted the offensive in key villages around Janale, a newly liberated town in the region.

At least seven terrorists were killed in the massive anti-Al-Shabaab operation by the SNA's 14th October battalion, according to the state media, citing unnamed senior military officials. 

The raid comes amid an intensified crackdown on Al-Shabaab in the Middle and Lower Shabelle regions in southern Somalia, where at least 300 militants were killed in a month.
