Al-Shabaab decimated as 85 members are killed in an operation

Somali Special Forces backed by allied troops have carried out a joint military offensive against the murderous terrorist group al-Shabaab, killing at least 85 militants during the operation.

The special forces raided an al-Shabaab hideout in Baladul Amin and Hanti Wadaag near Janalle town, some 91 km away from Somali capital Mogadishu.

The casualties could be much higher, according to security analysts, because al-Shabaab is known to hide its casualties by burying them in mass graves.Media reports indicate that 5 foreign Jihadists from Egypt, Tanzania and Mauritania fighting for the murderous group were among those who were killed in the operation.

Al-Shabaab has lost much of the territories it previously controlled thanks to continuous and relentless bombardments from the Somali National Army.It has resorted to kidnapping innocent school children to replenish the diminishing number of its fighters and recruit them as child soldiers.

Al-Shabaab executes 3 innocent civilians in public

The terminable group al-Shabaab has executed three Somali men in public in Mubaarak, a district in Lower Shabelle. Al-Shabaab accused two of the men of being Federal Government soldiers and the third man as one of the elders who had selected MPs and Senators for 2017 enhanced elections in Mogadishu.

The circumstances under which the elder was executed have baffled locals and some have attributed the reason of the killing as an effort by the blood-suckers to intimidate and instill fear in the hearts of dissidents. The deceased elder was known to denounce the group’s extremist ideologies in public.

The group often targets businesses and individuals who refuse to pay its unlawful and baseless taxes and those who advocate against its brutal and barbaric reign of terror. The accusations are a cover-up and in most cases the decision of whether one is guilty or innocent is reached by an al-Shabaab regional leader.

The extremist group is coming under sustained pressure from the Somali National Army and its foreign allies. That sustained pressure and drone attacks on al-Shabaab bases in Lower Shabelle might have forced the group to resort to executions and control dissent voices.

Al-Shabaab takes pride in placing landmines in public roads

The terrorist and murderous group al-Shabaab is known for its indiscriminate attacks against unarmed civilians and the placing of landmines near schools and playgrounds without ever considering who will eventually be the victim of the mines.

The Somali security agencies have foiled several attempts by the blood-suckers to obliterate innocent civilians by placing land mines and IEDs near schools, other social amenities and in public roads.

In April this year, 7 innocent lives were lost after a landmine placed by the blood-sucking group al-Shabaab exploded on civilians and 5 others were injured in Bula Burte in Hiiran region. Those who lost their lives included a mother, four of her children and an Islamic education tutor.

An in November, security agencies retrieved a landmine placed by the inconsiderate group al-Shabaab in the road that connects Danane and Jilib Marko towns preventing what could have been a devastating attack on the innocent if it detonated. In the same month, another landmine placed in a busy market in Hodan District in Mogadishu aimed at obliterating innocent civilians was retrieved by security agencies.
