Jubbaland army steps up offensive on Al shabaab

Troops from the interim Jubbaland administration, backed by KDF are stepping up offensive against Al shabaab-held towns and areas near Kismayo city.

The joint forces are reportedly advancing on Tabta, Qoqani, Dhobley and areas located in the outskirts of Afmadow, in an attempt to dislodge Al shabaab.

Local residents said they saw troops with tanks and armored vehicles massing in Qaqani village, where they are planning an all out assault on Al shabaab bases.

Jubbaland state has declared last week an anti-al shabaab offensive in middle and Lowere Jubba regions of southern Somalia, to drive militants out of their remaining pockets.
