At Least three al-Shabaab fighters have been in fighting with Somali and AU troops in Hiran region.

The clashes flared up after the Somali National Army and African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) launch joint operation.

Speaking to the media, Mr. Mohamed Ali Mohamed, deputy governor of Jalalaqsi town in charge of security said SNA backed by AMISOM forces killed three al-Shabaab in the confrontation.

“We were going to carry out an operation in the area when the militants intercepted us but our forces overpowered them, killing three of the militants,” said Mr. Mohamed.

According to the official, the operation was launched after al-Shabaab ambushed a convoy carrying Somali troops and AU forces.
