On Saturday, the US Military reported that 52 terrorists from the terrorist group Al-Shabaab, known for its affiliations with the terrorist group Al-Qaeda, were killed in an airstrike in Somalia. The US Africa Command, which looks after Africa, reported that the military strike was in response to an attack from Al-Shabaab firing on Somali National Army Forces.
The US Military stated that no civilians were injured or killed in the attack. The attack was reported to occur as a response to a recent terrorist attack from Al-Shabaab, which killed 21 people in a hotel complex in the Kenyan Capital.
Worryingly, there is a growing amount of Al-Shabaab fighters. There are currently 3,000 - 7,000 fighters in the terrorist group. This number will decline as many countries are actively fighting against Al-Shabaab. US President Donald Trump has lead the majority of the strikes against Al-Shabaab, and he has clearly stated that he will be willing to lead more strikes against terrorist groups such as Al-Shabaab in the future if required.
