United States Conducts Airstrike in Support of the Federal Government of Somalia
WASHINGTON D.C., United States of America, November 29, 2017-Marege.com-
In coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, U.S. forces conducted an airstrike against ISIS, in northeastern Somalia on Nov. 27, killing one terrorist.
The strike occurred at approximately 3 p.m. local Somalia time.
U.S. forces will continue to use all authorized and appropriate measures to protect U.S. citizens and to disable terrorist threats. This includes partnering with AMISOM and Somali National Security Forces (SNSF) in combined counterterrorism operations and targeting terrorists, their training camps, and their safe havens throughout Somalia and the region.
Our political and security goals in Somalia are the same: a reconstituted Somali state at peace internally and able to address all threats within its territory.
