Regional state spokesman, Ahmed Arab has told the media that operations to flush out fighters wives will be launch.
“We will not let you live here, you should leave out or else, we are starting to collect you wives of Al-Shabaab and exile, We and Al-Shabaab are enemy, not friends,” said Arab.
He added, “We know where they live and we will not rest until they are out.”
The Al Shabab’ wives are suspected of spying for their husbands who were forced out of the port city of Kismayo which lies lies 328 miles (528 km) southwest of Mogadishu, by Somali National Army backed by AMISOM troops in 2012.
