Somali government forces with the support of AMISOM troops recently secured the strategic town of Wanla Weyn on the Afgooye to Baidoa corridor in lower Shabelle.

Wanla Weyn is 93km from Mogadishu.

The allied forces also captured Balli Doogle Airbase, a former air force training base, 11kms from Wanla Weyn.

The securing of this town comes one day after AMISOM troops began their 211 km advance from Afgooye to Baidoa with aim of connecting the two regions.

Wanla Weyn town falls at a strategic junction linking the two Shabelle regions to Baidoa and Beletweyne.

This advance was planned to deny fleeing Al Shabaab insurgents from seeking refuge and destabilizing other regions of the country.

AMISOM Force Commander, Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti commended his troops and explained the significance of this move.

Other towns such as Balad, Afgoye, Miido, Kismayo among others, were recently secured by the allied forces.
