Somalia Troops Recapture Villages From Al-Shabaab Insurgents

Government Soldiers in Somalia have recaptured at least six villages from the Al-Shabaab, in a week the Al-Qaida linked group has terrorized several towns across the country, killing dozens of people in the process.

State media reported that they destroyed several bases of the militants in Lower Shabelle, including secret houses that they use in extorting money from the people and businesses within the Horn of Africa nation.

Although the military never mentioned the participation of foreign troops in the mission, the elite Danab Special Forces have been conducting such operations with little or no help from the African Union Mission Forces [AMISOM] and the US Africa Command.
