Somali army confirmed on Thursday that its forces killed several al-Shabab fighters at one of its military bases in southern region.

The Somali National Army (SNA) said several others were injured during a hit and run attack on SNA base in Bal’ad district of Middle Shabelle.

“The attacks were repelled. Further, al-Shabab terrorists were confirmed to be killed and many injured,” SNA said in a statement issued in Mogadishu.

The military said there were no casualties suffered by SNA.

It said the forces had degraded al-Shabab capabilities to take effective attacks in the nation.

African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and SNA forces have been on major offensives against AL-Shabab in central and southern Somali regions.

But the militants still hold swaths of territory in those regions, conducting ambushes and planting roadside bombs.
