US strike kills 6 al-Shabaab militants in Somalia


The United States carried out a strike in Somalia that killed six al-Shabaab militants on Friday, US Africa Command said in a statement.

The strike was in “self-defense”, according to the command, or AFRICOM, and it was carried out at the request of the Somali government. According to an initial assessment, no civilians were killed or injured, AFRICOM said.

It was the third such strike in 10 days, and it occurred in the same region of Somalia near the town of Cadale, about 150 miles northeast of the capital Mogadishu.

The first was on December 14 and AFRICOM said seven al-Shabaab militants were killed. The second strike took place three days later and killed eight al-Shabaab militants.

“Al-Shabaab is the largest and deadliest al-Qaeda network in the world and has proven both its willingness and ability to attack Somali, East African and American civilians,” AFRICOM said. in the press release.

The United States has provided continued support to the Somali government since President Joe Biden in May approved a request from the Pentagon to redeploy American troops to the region to try to counter the terror group. The approval to send fewer than 500 troops was a reversal of former President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw all US troops from the country in 2020.
