The operation is the latest in a series of operations by government security agencies and regional vigilante groups aimed at crushing the al-Qaeda affiliated group.

President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud pledged to crush the militant group to ensure Somalia was at peace, a promise he has reiterated on other occasions.

Mohamud says including regional vigilante groups into the fight against al-Shabaab has boosted Somalia’s ability to tackle terrorism.

The Somali National Army, backed by the African Union Mission in Somalia, drove al-Shabaab out of Mogadishu in 2011. However, the terror group is still capable of conducting attacks, targeting government installations, hotels, restaurants and public places.
