The Somali National Army (SNA) has delivered equipment confiscated after dismantling of Alshabaab’s mouthpiece, Radio Andalus to the government, Radio Dalsan reports.
Somali Acting Information Minister Abdirahman Idan Yonis who spoke to the media in Mogadishu acknowledged the work of SNA.
“The Somali National Army in an operation destroyed Alshabaab bases in the Lower Shabelle. The army also took over Alshabaab’s main media Andalus. It was dismantled and brought to Mogadishu,” said Mr. Yonis.
“Alshabaab used to mislead the locals in Mubaarak village and its surroundings through that radio station,” he added.
Mr. Yonis also stressed on the government’s commitment to defeating the militants.
“The government of Somalia is committed ideologically and military wise to defeat Alshabaab which is against peace and governance,” Mr. Yonis said.
US-backed SNA launched an operation on Alshabaab controlled areas in the Lower Shabelle region destroying several militant bases, checkpoints and the Radio Andalus station.
The Army also captured several villages from the militants according to the Federal government of Somalia.
