Shebab chief surrenders after Amisom attacks



Somali National Army supported by AMISOM forces overran and destroyed an illegal Al Shabaab checkpoint in Abdi Biroole town South West of Kismayo over the weekend.

AMISOM and SNA forces later met with clan elders and discussed the security situation in the area.

They also pledged continued partnership in fighting terrorism.

On April 18, a former Al Shabaab Senior commander Ahmed Mohamud Afrah in Galcad surrendered to the Somali Police Force.

AMISOM congratulated Ahmed upon his act of courage and encouraged other militants to abandon acts of terrorism and embrace peace.

On April 11, SNA Special Forces supported by AMISOM overran and destroyed an Al Shabaab training camp near Yoontoy town, north of Kismayo.

Several of the terrorists were killed and a large cache of weapons captured.

AMISOM continues to support the FGS  in the quest for peace.

On April 10, African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) troops and the Somali National Army (SNA) liberated and taken control of the town of Adan Yabaal in Middle Shabelle region after a major offensive against the terrorist group Al Shabaab.

The joint forces confronted the militants in Moqokori and Mahaas in Hiiraan region, where they have been operating from lately, before driving them out of Adan Yabaal.

The civilian population, that had vacated the town to neighbouring districts for fear of collateral damage, is slowly returning to their homes in Adan Yabaal.

They are, however, facing acute shortages particularly water, as the fleeing Al Shabaab militants shelled the residential area, vandalised amenities, burnt foodstuffs and destroyed the generator that used to pump water from the only functioning borehole in town.

AMISOM and SNA are currently working with the Federal Government of Somalia to restore water and other essential services in Adan Yabaal.

They are also conducting patrols and clearing the area of booby traps and IEDs planted by Al Shabaab.
