The United States (US) has conducted a Military drone strike targeting al-Shabaab militants in Somalia. The US Military Africa Command has stated that the air assault is the first Military action against the jihadist group in East Africa since August 2021. The MQ-9 Reaper strike follows a recent attack by al-Shabaab on allied Somali forces in Duduble, located approximately 40 miles northwest of Mogadishu, and amid a significant increase in suicide attacks in Somalia. The Command has stated that assessments are underway to determine how many al-Shabaab militants have been neutralised during the Military operation.
