Somali army foils al-Shabab attack in Lower Jubba region

Thursday April 11, 2024

Kismayo (HOL) - The forces of the federal government, with assistance from Jubbaland regional forces, thwarted an attack by the al-Shabab group in the Barsanguni area of the Lower Jubba region on Thursday.

A statement issued by the federal government reported that the army killed several militants during the operation, thereby preventing the attack that the group intended to carry out in Barsanguni.

"The National Army averted the attack upon receiving intelligence, and operations are still ongoing in the area," the statement said.

This incident occurred just days after elite troops from the Danab contingent killed a senior al-Shabab leader and several members of the group in the Lower Shabelle region.
