Anti-terrorist campaign in Somalia continues despite troop reduction | Washington Examiner

The United States African Command have made it clear that despite American troops slowly being taken out of foreign countries, they will not decrease their efforts in the fight against the terrorist group Al Shabab in Somalia. About a week and a half ago, President Trump ordered 750 troops to be taken out of Somalia. Even though AFRICOM commanders thinks U.S. support it is vital to the continued fight, once Trump removed the most recent batch of troops, AFRICOM quickly scrambled to place the remaining troops on the borders of neighboring countries. AFRICOM continues to focus their attention to the terrorist groups that infiltrate their country. “The airstrikes reflect this fact and demonstrates Al-Shabaab will not go unchecked,” Colonel Christopher Karns told the Washington Post.
