Al Shabab attack in Somalia leaves at least 21 dead

According to local media, the Armed Forces eliminated the extremists through a bombardment carried out last Friday against targets in the vicinity of the city of Jamame, located in the Bajo Yuba Usr region.

As a consequence of the operation, the commanders of the extremist entity died: Adan Abdirahman and Idiris Abdirahim Nur. The sources specified that Abdirahim was of Kenyan origin.

The Army indicated that the attack was carried out against a position where a meeting of members of the terrorist group was taking place, in which they planned an attack against the Barsanguni military base, where Somali forces and local militias are located.

The statement of the Armed Forces comes after the elimination of the high official of Al Shabab, Ali Ahmed Guure, alias "AlΓ­ Qoyane'" was announced last Friday as a result of an operation by the Danab special forces in Galgaduud, in the center from the country.

Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud announced last August a "total war" against the radical group with the support of the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS).

Al-Shabab, affiliated with the Al-Qaeda terrorist network, has carried out a conflict for years with the aim of establishing an Islamic state in the nation in the so-called Horn of Africa.
