Jihadist group Al-Shabab in Somalia


According to aerial surveys, the intelligence jeep and the camp of the jihadist sabotage group, which was created as a springboard in the above region, were destroyed. As a result of the airstrike, at least 6 militants were destroyed, it is officially reported that civilians were not injured.

According to the information provided, the US Army (along with the forces of the Government of Somalia and other countries of the African Union) has increased in recent months the number of air and ground operations against jihadists in Somalia and other countries of the Horn of Africa.

According to some estimates, the American forces in the region are also gradually increasing in number, and, as expected, part of the units that the Pentagon plans to withdraw from Eastern Syria according to a recently adopted decision of the US President will be transferred to Somalia.

    US ground forces have not traditionally been involved in the operation
    Ironing from the air, so that the earth burns everyone in a row, and cities with double pleasure are a distinctive feature of the United States. And ground forces are not used because their fosterlings on the ground practically do not touch them. In addition, there was someone to send into battle - the Kurds, who were considered "allies".
