Unidentified jets struck what were described as “al Shabaab hideouts” in Galgala in the northern autonomous region of Puntland, according to a local report.
Garowe Online said the strikes – carried out by warplanes “launched from a carrier at sea” – hit militants in their bases along the Golis Mountain Ranges in Puntland, northern Somalia. It also reported that civilian infrastructure, including “nomadic build up vicinities and water wells”, was struck “by mistake.”
There were however no known reports of civilian harm.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
