Somalia National Intelligence and Security Agency on Sunday killed 21 Al-Shabaab militants and wounded dozens in central Somalia, the government said.

The Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism said the security operation was conducted in Galka Salimow village after the country’s intelligence agency received prior information of al-Shabab’s intention to carry out attacks.

The ministry said about 200 members of al-Shabab died last week following a relentless onslaught by Somali troops. “This is a big blow to terrorists and it means that within four days the National Army has killed almost 200 members of al-Shabab Khawarij,” the ministry said.
