US Military Says One Militant Killed In Anti-Al-Shabab Airstrike
...... Somalia's version of the Taliban, functioning as an arm of al-Qaeda...
murderous Moslem has been killed on Tuesday as a result of new Arclight airstrike
in Jilib town area of Somalia.

The United States Africa Command conducted the airstrike in coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia targeting an al-Shabaab terrorist in the vicinity of Jilib.

The director of operations at US Africa Command, US Army Major General William Gayler said in a statement, "We continue to place pressure on terrorist networks at the same time our Somali partners are making progress on the ground."

"These strikes certainly disrupt the network and remove gunnies from causing further harm," he further added.

The US Africa Command said that strikes near Jilib disrupt al-Shabaab’s freedom of maneuver.

According to the current assessment of US Africa Command, no civilians were maimed or killed as a result of this airstrike.
