MOGADISHU, Somalia – The US military says it has carried out two air strikes targeting al Shabaab militants in southern Somalia, killing at least two militants.
The strikes were conducted in the vicinity of Qunyo Barrow town in coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, said in a statement released by U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Gregory Hadfield, U.S. Africa Command deputy director of intelligence.
Gen. Hadfield says two militants were killed in the bombing.
“The support the U.S. provides to our partners in our cooperative efforts to enhance security throughout Africa is unmatched by our competitors and is vital to not only East African security but to protecting the America forces on the continent and abroad,” he added.
