Somali army to launch war on Al Shabab

MOGADISHU, Somalia – Somalia’s Jubaland state military says its forces will launch joint military offensive against towns held by Al Shabaab.

Jubaland’s Minister of Security, Abdurashid Abdi Nour Janan told journalists that the Jubaland military forces will flush out Al Shabaab in Jubba and Gedo regions.

The announcement was made after Janan and his delegates arrived in Baladhawo, a town close to Kenyan border along Somalia.

The Al Qaeda inspired group also lost key towns to Somali army forces backed by African Union troops following joint military operations.

But, the group still controls large swathes of territory in rural areas in south and central Somalia.
