Airstrike kills two militants after US troops come under fire in Somalia
By: Kyle Rempfer   17 hours ago


The United States conducted an airstrike in Somalia Tuesday after U.S. and partner troops came under attack.

The incident occurred 37 miles west of Mogadishu, the country’s capital, in the central Somali village of Mubaraak. U.S. troops were participating in a “Somali partner forces-led operation against al­ Shabab, an al-Qaida-affiliated terrorist group,” according to a press release from U.S. Africa Command Thursday.

The airstrike was conducted against an enemy fighting position after the joint patrol had already come under fire. AFRICOM reported that two al Shabab Islamist militants were killed in the strike, and one other militant was wounded.
