    Somali government forces supported by AU troops have captured Janaa Cabdalla town, a stronghold of the Al Qaeda-affiliated terror group, al Shabaab, following a three-day operation.

    Janaa Cabdalla is located 50 kilometres to the west of the port city of Kismayo in the Lower Jubba region.

    The operation, which was conducted by the Kenyan contingent of AMISOM, also recovered a cache of weapons and ammunition.

    Two AMISOM troops and five SNA soldiers sustained minor injuries and have been evacuated to Dobley for medical attention.

    “Securing Janaa Cabdalla will give AMISOM the ability to better protect the civilian population in the area as well as consolidate the security gains that have been achieved so far,” said the acting AMISOM Force Commander, Major General Karanja.
