The military operation was conducted in Yasoman village amid increased attacks by government forces. The operation was still underway to flush out the terrorists who have engaged the government forces in near-daily attacks.
The latest move came after the government forces on Saturday killed 43 al-Shabab militants in an operation carried out in Aborey which is the central part of Somalia.
Mohamed Tahlil Bihi, SNA commander of infantry troops said more than 30 villages have been re-captured by SNA forces in operations carried out in the past few weeks.
