U.S Anti-terrorist AirstrikeCampaign in Somalia Killed Expert Bombmakers, AFRICOM says


Somalilandsun: U.S. Africa Command showed it is not about to scale back the fight against Islamic terrorist group al Shabab in Somalia, releasing its first video of a targeted airstrike Dec. 10 as American soldiers prepare to leave the country at President Trump’s orders.

The short, black-and-white video with blue crosshairs shows a precision missile hitting a target inside a building compound. AFRICOM said eight bomb makers were killed and two were injured in the strike.

“Even when the repositioning of forces occurs, AFRICOM will ensure a focus on the continuity of operations and support in Somalia and the East African region,” U.S. Air Force Col. Christopher Karns told the Washington Examiner.
