Somali troops and Ma’wisley retake villages from Al-Shabaab


BELEDWEYYNE (SMN) – Somali Govt troops backed by local community fighters known as Ma’wisley have seized control of main areas from Al-Shabaab during an offensive.


The combined forces moved into Domalik and Hamirtoley located west of Beledweyne city, the regional capital of Hiran without encountering any resistance from Al-Shabaab.

Al-Shabaab militants withdrew from the two areas before the troops arrived and the residents reported heavy security operations to ensure stability following the capture.

Hiran is among the regions in central and southern Somalia that saw a heavy army offensive since August this year. The SNA and the residents retook vast ground.
