0

The US military says it has carried out an airstrike in central Somalia targeting al-Shabaab that killed seven extremists.

The US Africa Command statement says Tuesday’s airstrike occurred in Quy Cad in the Mudug region. The strike was carried out a day after two other US airstrikes killed 37 extremists with the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab.

Like the previous statement, this one says it believes no civilians were killed or injured.

The US has carried out 33 airstrikes this year against al-Shabaab, the deadliest Islamic extremist group in Africa. The military says the airstrikes are aimed at reducing al-Shabaab’s ability to plan attacks, disrupting its leadership networks and limiting its freedom of movement in the Horn of Africa nation.

Al-Shabaab often targets the capital, Mogadishu, and other cities with deadly bombings.
