Counterterrorism Strikes in Somalia Continue, Despite Reports of a Drawdown
 
By Bill Roggio

U.S. counterterrorism operations against al Qaeda’s branch in Somalia show no signs of slowing down despite a report last week that said the Pentagon plans to reduce its role there. The U.S. military has launched four airstrikes against Shabaab during the first week of 2018.

U.S. Africa Command, which directs operations against Shabaab – al Qaeda’s affiliate in Somalia and East Africa – announced that it launched two strikes against Shabaab fighters and killed four of them as they attacked Somali forces near Baqdaad just north of Mogadishu on Jan. 7. AFRICOM killed six fighters near Dheerow Sanle on Jan. 6, and 10 more in the same area on Jan. 3.
