Militia forces have vacated from Deeqlo and Maraale in Xarardheere district following heavy threats from the country’s armed forces in pursuit of hideouts in some areas.

Security officials from the Armed Forces told the media that the militants have vacated the region, after the Somali National Army carried out shelling last week, saying that the operations posted on villages in hiding Galmudug areas.

Al-Shabaab militias are causing civilian casualties in the area, and have faced heavy fears following operations in the region.
