Posted on September 3, 2014


MOGADISHU (TAP) – The U.S. military launched an airstrike against Somalia’s Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab network on Monday, U.S. officials said.

Governor of Somalia’s Lower Shabelle region, Abdikadir Mohamed Nur Sidii, said that the attack appeared to target an Al-Shabaab camp where top leaders were meeting to discuss an ongoing joint offensive by Somali and AU troops in the country’s south.

Few details were available about the operation but Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said that “we are assessing the results of the operation and will provide additional information as and when appropriate.”
