A U.S. defense official said that the strike on an al-Shabaab training camp was carried out by a manned aircraft, CNN reported.
The military’s Africa Command said that the strike was carried out on a camp 125 miles northwest of the capital, Mogadishu.
Al-Shabaab has pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda and is dedicated to providing safe haven for terrorist attacks throughout the world.
According to the reports, Al Shabaab is fighting to topple Somalia‘s Western-backed transitional federal government and impose its own rule on the Horn of Africa country.
There have been 29 strikes acknowledged by the Pentagon so far this year. Seven of those strikes took place between November 9 and 14. (ANI)
