US Africa Command in coordination with the gov’t of Somalia conducted an airstrike by targeting an Al shabab terrorist in the vicinity of Dujumma on December, 16.
The one terrorist was killed according to a news release from Africom and no civilians were killed or injured in the attack.
Marine Corps Brg. Gen. Bradford J. Gering, deputy director of operations, US Africa Command said the removal of AL Shabab terrorist increases security of Somali people as these terrorists indiscriminately attack innocent civilians and destabilize the elected gov’t.
He added that Somali national army and their partners have made significant strides in targeting AL Shabab in order to deny them on the ability to both attacks against the Somali people.
