GOOBJOOG NEWS/BAL’AD: US-trained elite forces locally known as Danab, have carried out planned operations in Hawadley, Jameco, Yaqle, Dhagahow all within the vicinity of Bal’ad district, 30 Km north of Mogadishu.
According to a military source, the operation saw the killing of 15 Al-Shabaab fighters and their top officials. The elite forces were also able confiscate some vehicles belonging to the group, as well as destroy the group’s tax offices and courts.
On Monday, Danab said an operation to liberate Jameco and Hawadley from the terrorist’s grip resulted in the killing of 10 members of the group and destruction of money collection points and courts.
Monday and Thursday’s operations are a welcome move to the residents of the mentioned areas, since they have been at the mercy of the Al-Qaeda-affilliated terror group which has imposed tough sharia laws and caused untold suffering for several months now.
