Somalia:AMISOM successfully carried out an in-depth operation on two Al-Shabaab camps in Lower Juba Region



Mogadishu, 13th September 2014: Yesterday at around 0600 hours, AMISOM forces conducted several targeted in-depth operations around the town of Badhadhe in Lower Juba region in a village called Lagta Berta targeting two camps where Al-Shabaab militiamen had converged after fleeing from the impending fall of Barawe from the ongoing Operation Indian Ocean.


During the raid, Al-Shabaab suffered heavy losses, including foreign fighters. Many Al-Shabaab militias were also wounded in the attack which completely destroyed the facility which was a hideout for the terrorists.


Yesterday’s operation is a clear indication of the joint cooperation between various AMISOM sectors since the attack was carried out in sector 2 by the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) in support of Sector 1 manned by Ugandan People Defense Forces (UPDF) who are advancing towards the Al-Shabaab stronghold of Barawe.


This is part of continued efforts by AMISOM forces to root out Al-Shabaab from its strongholds and to protect the hard won security gains to ensure that Somalia continues on the road to recovery and lasting peace.
