The Somali national army and AMISOM on Saturday recaptured Rageh Elle 90 from the capital Mogadishu from Al-Shabab a joint operation.
The troops recaptured the town peacefully after Al Shabaab fighters retreated.
Raggeh Elle was first liberated by the Somali National Army (SNA) from Al-Shabaab militants six years ago.
Alshabab militants who are linked to Al-Qaeda are fighting in Somalia to overthrow the internationally recognized central government to establish harsh Sharia law understood in their own interpretation.
Alshabab has been fighting in Somalia since 2008 and has been chased away from Mogadishu but the militants hold large swathes of territory and frequently conducts car bombs and gun attacks in Mogadishu and elsewhere in the country.
