Al-Shabaab  has faced heavy defeat from a combined force of Amisom and the Somali national army in recent months.
The two forces have been receiving help from US forces and have managed to liberate several areas that had been under the control of al-Shabaab.
Amisom troops in April 2016 took control of  al-Shabaab areas near Hudur town, the capital of Bakool region in southwest Somalia.
Al-Shabaab still controls remote areas in southern and southwest areas of Somalia.
Amisom forces with the help of the Somali national army and US forces have launched joint military operations to eliminate the terror groups from the areas.
