Militants Killed in Four Days of US Strikes in Somalia
Local Editor

The Pentagon announced Monday that the US forces had killed 40 Shabaab and Daesh [Arabic acronym for the terrorist "ISIS"/"ISIL"] militants in a series of strikes on Somalia that began late last week.

The US military has launched five strikes since Thursday on militants' positions in the Horn of Africa country, killing 36 members of the al-Qaedda-affiliated Shabaab group and four from the Daesh group, said Colonel Rob Manning, a spokesman.

"In coordination with the federal government of Somalia, US forces conducted five airstrikes in Somalia against Al-Shabaab and Daesh, from November 9 to the 12th, removing more than 40 terrorists from the battlefield," Manning said.
The strikes were carried out by the US Africa Command, and followed two devastating attacks attributed to militants in Mogadishu that left about 385 people dead last month.

A pair of US drone strikes that killed several militants on November 3 marked the first time American forces hit Daesh terrorists in Somalia.
