A joint African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) force has killed two Al Shabaab fighters in a retaliatory attack on the terrorists who last month attacked a UPDF forward operating base in Buulo Mareer.
Major Peter Mugisa the UPDF Spokesperson for Atmis said the two Al Shabaab fighters who were put out of action had attacked a camp in the general areas of Beledamin-Lower Shabelle.
He adds that the fighters had been part of a group extorting locals of illegal taxes and food items.
“The loss of their fighters is a relief to civilians who have grappled with violent criminal acts meted out by Alshabaab terrorists. Beledamin is an agricultural area 82 km Southwest of Mogadishu in Lower Shabelle,” he said.
