Somali forces recapture Qandala town from IS.

Somali regional forces of Puntland in the north liberated ISIS affiliated fighters from the key town of Qandala located west of Bosaso, Puntland officials, said on Wednesday

The militants captured the coastal town just last month without resistance making the first time IS fighters captured a town in Somalia.

Puntland Government forces took full control of the town of Qandala without clashes against the militants.

The splinter group is led by Sheikh Abdiqadir Mumin, who broke away from the much larger al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab group last year and pledged allegiance to ISIS.
