Somali Security Forces shot dead a man suspected to be Al-Shabaab member after the man killed a civilian inside Mogadishu’s main Market on Monday.

Spokesperson of Banadir Regional Administration Abdifatah Omar Halane who visited the scene after the incident said that the militant was killed on the spot.

“Security forces shot dead an Al-Shabaab Fighter immediately after he killed innocent civilian at Bakara market in Hawl-wadag district today. The security forces are committed to taking action against Al-Shabaab Militants,” Halane said.

Halane urged the public to work with the security forces to beef up the security of the city during the holy month of Ramadan.

Somali security forces have stepped up their operations against Al-Shabaab Militants during the holy month of Ramadan.

Security officials believe armed groups have used residential areas as bases to prepare attacks and then mingled with residents in urban areas to carry them out.

Although Al-Shabaab was ousted from its bases in Mogadishu in 2011, militants continue to stage lethal attacks across the seaside city.
