Jubbaland and AU forces regain towns near Kismayo

Sources inside the southern port city of Kismayo indicate that the interim Jubbaland administration forces, along with African Union troops have wrested full control of new grounds from Al Shabaab.

The allied troops recaptured Abdalla-Birole and Janay Abdalla villages, located some 40Km west of Kismayo, the current seat of Jubbaland state without encountering resistance from Al Shabaab.

The coalition forces are reportedly heading to new areas near the captured villages, in an attempt to dislodge the Al Qaeda-linked Al Shabaab fighters from their strongholds in Lower Jubba region.

The squeezing forces are currently advancing to towards Berhani village, 60Km west of Kismayo, the seaside city that is serving as the main headquaters of Jubbaland state of Somalia.
