Mogadishu (Horn Observer) United States Africa Command said on Wednesday that it had carried out airstrike against the Shabab militants in the morning of 24 December 2017 in Southern Somalia, killing at least 13 Shabab militants in the attack.

The Airstrike, according to a statement released by US Africa Command, was carried out in coordination with the Federal government of Somalia.
"U.S. forces will continue to use all authorized and appropriate measures to protect the United States, its partners and interests, and deny safe haven to terrorist groups.” Press release by US Africa command said, "This includes partnering with AMISOM and Somali National Security Forces (SNSF) in combined counterterrorism operations and targeting terrorists, their training camps, and their safe havens throughout Somalia and the region.”


"Together with other international partners, the United States is committed to providing Somali, AMISOM and SNSF with support in the fight against violent extremist organizations.” the Statement added.

US Forces increased its airstrike against the Somali militants after the deadly 14 October attack that killed at least 500 people and wounded similar number, making impossible for the militants to organize such attacks.
