Adale District (Somali:Cadale; Italian:Adalei or Itala), also known as Cadaley, is a coastal town in the southern Middle Shabelle (Shabeellaha Dhexe,) region of Somalia. Adale is the only notable urban coastal feature of the State of Hirshabelle, with a coastline that faces the Somali Sea.
On 3 October 2014 the town was liberated from the jihadist terrorist group Al-Shabaab by the Somalia National Army and AMISOM forces. Al-Shabaab had occupied the town for several years. According to AMISOM-sources Al-Shabaab did not mount any resistance because they had lost support from the public in Adale.
