Al-Shabaab retakes area from Jubaland state forces
Reports reaching at our Desktop News from Lower Juba region of southern Somalia indicate that Al-Shabaab has recaptured key area from Jubaland forces on Sunday.
Local residents confirmed that hundreds of gun-toting militants in pick-ups moved into Dag-Allamo village located near Dhoobley town following the pullout of the regional army.
There has been no single bullet fired during the take-over. The fighters from Al-Shabaab lectured villagers to announce their come-back and launched an operation subsequently.
Jubaland state army officials are yet to comment on the seizure of the area which has been under their control since 2012.
