15 al-Shabaab militants were reportedly killed by Somali forces and “international partner” airstrikes or ground operations near Bulo Madina on November 24, 2022.
Somali National Television posted on Twitter that 15 al-Shabaab militants were killed by an operation carried out by Somali security forces with the support of airstrikes from “international security partners” near Bulo Madina. @HarunMaruf added that the 15 militants killed had survived the operation the day before and were tracked down.
@GaroweOnline pointed out that no independent sources have been able to verify the government’s casualty claims.
While no sources directly implicated the US in the operation, the Somali government’s reference to “international partners” has in the past indicated US involvement.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
