Military operations conducted by 14th October battalion of the Somali National Army in Jilib Marka town in Lower Shabelle region saw the destruction an al-Shabaab base and taxation centre in the town.
Six al-Shabaab members including high ranking ones were also killed in the operation and weapons intended to harm innocent civilians were also seized from the blood-suckers.
According to military officials familiar with the operations, similar operations are continuing in the town’s outskirts and the military is hunting down those members who fled, shaved their beards and rejoined civilians.
The murderous group al-Shabaab has been weakened both financially and militarily the last few months. Key towns were liberated from the shackles of the group among them Awdegle town where bodies of those al-Shabaab members killed in its liberation could not be counted.
The blood-lust murderous group al-Shabaab is opposed to any peace and development enjoyed by the Somali people and should be fought by hook or by crook.
