The United States military said on Saturday that it killed three Islamic State (IS) fighters in Somalia’s Puntland region in an air attack on Friday.

The U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) said in a statement that no civilians were killed or injured in the strike which was conducted in cooperation with Somali government targeting ISIS (the IS) encampment in the Golis Mountains.

The statement said the Golis Mountains are a known area for al-Shabaab camps and ongoing fighting between al-Shabaab and ISIS Somalia.

Robert Huston, deputy director of operations at AFRICOM, said persistent pressure on the network ensures the threat is contained while degrading al-Shabaab capabilities.
