A United States airstrike in Somalia has killed 35 suspected al-Shabaab militants, the U.S. Africa Command said on Monday.
The strike in central Hiran region on Sunday “interrupted an al-Shabaab attempt to mass their forces,’’ the U.S. disclosed in a statement.
U.S. forces are partnering African Union troops (AMISOM) and the Somali National Security Forces in combined counterterrorism operations in the troubled East African nation.
Al-Shabaab is seeking to establish a fundamentalist Islamist state in Somalia.
They regularly launch attacks on government buildings, hotels and restaurants in the volatile Horn of Africa nation.
The group is affiliated with the international al-Qaeda terrorist network.
