Somali forces “repulsed” an attack from Al-Shabaab

Somali government forces on Friday set afire and destroyed a vehicle full of explosives in Jilib Marka, Lower Shabelle region. Highly trained Danab forces carried out the planned operation.
The Somali National Army said that the burnt vehicle belonged to Al-Shabaab.
