US and Somalia Army Forces in a joint military operation raided Al-Shabaab and killed several militants.
In a dawn operation, the US and SNA forces raided a militant-held in southern Somalia and killed several Al-Shabaab operatives early Thursday.
According to a Senior Somali Intelligence official, the raid involved Somali Commandos supported by US Special Forces in two Attack helicopters.
The two helicopters raided two locations, the official said. They included a detention center run by Al-Shabaab in Kunya-Barrow village in Lower Shabelle region where unknown number of detainees were freed.
Troops engaged a small number of extremist fighters in a makeshift camp, a few kilometers but in the same region where over a dozen militants suffered heavy casualties from the air raids.
