SNA and local forces, Macawisley fought and pushed back terrorist militant fighters of Al-Shabaab who crossed the Shabelle river from Bardhere area south of Beledweyne town in Hiiraan region early in the morning according to military sources. Sources also said that SNA and Jubaland State forces reacted swiftly after Al-Shabaab militants shelled mortar rounds around Sanguni area about 45 Km south of Kismayo, the administrative capital of Jubaland State in the country. Al-Shabaab militants claimed to have inflicted casualties on SNA soldiers after attacking army bases in those two regions, but their claims were said to be baseless propaganda against the reality on the ground according to military sources. On the other side, Somali National Army's elite forces, Danab and Gor-gor units took control of Ceel Cali Heele in Galgudud region under Galmudug State after conducting special operation there today.
