Mogadishu(SONNA):The Federal Government of Somalia, in partnership with the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM), conducted two airstrikes against al-Shabaab in the vicinity of Dab shiniile and Jamaame on Jan. 19, 2021. According to initial assessments, the airstrikes killed three al-Shabaab operatives. The al-Shabaab operatives killed in the airstrikes were known as leaders connected to IED facilitation and fighter recruitment and training no civilians were killed or injured in the attacks, according to initial assessments the Federal Government of Somalia and U.S. Africa Command forces take great measures to prevent civilian casualties. These efforts contrast with the indiscriminate attacks that al-Shabaab regularly conducts against the civilian population. The Federal Government of Somalia and the United States remain committed to fighting al-Shabaab and other militant organizations to prevent the deaths of innocent men, women, and children in Somalia and neighboring countries. Through this cooperation, the Federal Government of Somalia aims to rid Somalia of al-Shabaab and to provide a better future for the Somali people.
