U.S. AFRICA COMMAND

U.S. Africa Command has posted a video of an airstrike conducted in Somalia that killed eight al-Shabab bomb makers. Lt. Gen. Kirk Smith, AFRICOM deputy commander, has stated that “Al-Shabaab’s continuous attacks demonstrate its willingness to accept high numbers of civilian casualties while advancing operations aimed at undermining security across Somalia.” The terrorists were known for making explosive devices for the group and specialized in making car bombs.
