The United States executed an air strike against al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Somalia early this week, Garowe Online reported today.

“In coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, US forces conducted an air strike targeting al-Shabaab militants approximately 50 kilometres north of Kismayo, Somalia,” Major Karl Wiest, a spokesman for US Africa Command, said.

Al-Shabaab was seen moving tactically and carrying a variety of weaponry in an area close to the attack. The place of attack is located in Jubaland, approximately 350 kilometres southwest of the capital Mogadishu.

The air strike follows al-Shabaab’s suicide bombing and storming of a military base in southern Somalia, which killed 27 Somali National Army soldiers. The last US air strike was executed on 2 June.
