US says new strike kills Al Shabaab fighter in Somalia
The US military says a new strike has killed an Al Shabaab fighter near Kunya Barow town in the southwest of Somalia.
The strike was conducted in coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, said, in a statement relased by U.S. Africa Command.
“This strike demonstrates that U.S. and Somali forces will continue to take every opportunity to counter and degrade the capacity of al-Shabaab to plan and conduct attacks,” the memo said.
It says a terrorist was killed in the bombing.
The command added no civilians were injured or killed as a result of the airstrike.
Washington has conducted fifty-four (54) airstrikes in 2019 against ISIS-Somalia and al-Shabaab militants, fighting positions, infrastructure, and equipment.
