An airstrike conducted by the U.S. military in Somalia’s Puntland region has killed seven pro-Islamic State militants. The airstrike was in response to an attack on partner forces by the militants according to U.S. Africa Command. This is the 42nd airstrike in Somalia by the US and the first successful attempt in targeting pro-ISIS forces who have been in Puntland since 2014. “We continue to apply pressure on terrorist groups and assist our Somali partners in disrupting their operations,” said U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Miguel Castellanos, deputy director of operations, AFRICOM.
