Somali troop carry out mine-clearance near Adan Yabal


ADAN YABAL [SMN] – Somali Govt troops began military movements following the capture of the Adan Yabal, which lies 245 km north of Mogadishu, the country’s capital.


Speaking to the state media, SNA boss Gen Odowa Yusuf said the soldiers started landmine clearance operations in the town to avert possible blasts that could harm local residents.

The latest operation was conducted in Al-Khowthar village, where the troops dislodged Al-Shabaab from their bases this week without encountering resistance.

The operation in the Middle Shabelle region bears fruits as the army gains more ground from Al-Shabaab, which is part of a larger offensive against the militants.
