Senior Al-Shabaab Terrorist Shot Dead in Central Part Of The Country, Somali National Army Reports

Somali National Army (SNA) reported on Saturday that its forces shot dead a senior al-Shabaab terrorist in Middle Shabelle, central part of the country.

The SNA added that Nuh Dhagool, who was engaging the sting operation to bribe the local populace to fund the team's activities in town, was shot dead on Friday night.

"The terrorist was the leader of bribery in the coastal region," the military noted in a brief statement.

The group, which fights to oust the internationally-supprted government, uses routes of southern and central Somalia to stage and conduct terror attacks, rob humanitarian assistance, bribe the local populace to finance its activities, and shelter dangerous assailants.

The terrorists have recently raised their attacks against African Union and Somali forces mostly in Mogadishu, the national capital, seeking to storm their bases, hotels and other public areas.

The latest development comes only two days after several groups of Alshabaab militants were killed in the region while on attempt to stage attacks.
