SNA, American Special CT Forces & AMISOM Kills Dozens of Al-Shabaab Militants in Awdhegle, Lower Shabelle

Somali Arm troops backed by American Special CT Forces and AMISOM contingent in Sector1 reported to have captured Awdhegle and Mubarak towns in Lower Shabelle region.

The joint forces killed tens of Al-Shabaab fighters after a lengthy exchange of machine gun fire with the Islamist militants on Monday mid-afternoon. The militants had attempted to stage an ambush on the army troop’s convoy.

Corresponding OSINT reports from eye witnesses also confirm deaths of many militants’ fighters

Such a death toll is a very significant loss to any fighting unit and demoralizes the fighters.

Awdhegle area has been used by Al-Shabaab to spy and conduct operations targeting surveillance drones and US Forces camps.
