Special forces stage helicopter raid on Somalia’s Shebab | theSundaily

Special forces operatives in two helicopters staged an overnight raid on Somalia’s Shebab insurgents, government officials and the Al-Qaeda-linked gunmen said on Wednesday.

The raid, reportedly by foreign troops, targeted the Shebab-controlled town of Awdhegele, some 50km west of Somalia’s capital Mogadishu.

“There was an operation by Special Forces late last night around Awdhegele town. We have reports Shebab militants suffered casualties,” local district commissioner Mohamed Aweys told reporters.
