The United States carried out three separate strikes against members of the Al-Shabaab terror group on Sunday, killing eight members of the group.
According to American Military News, The three strikes took place near the city of Mubaraak, Somalia.
The U.S. Army reportedly issued a statement regarding the strikes, confirming that no civilians lives were lost.
U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Miguel Castellanos, the deputy director of operations, told the public the following:
“Security is a prerequisite for economic growth and development… As the world works to contain COVID-19, it is important our partners recognize we continue to be committed to the security progress in Somalia and will continue to disrupt al-Shabaab’s terrorist activities.”
U.S. Army announced in a separate statement to American Military News over the weekend it had carried out another successful strike against the Somali terror group on Friday, killing five of its fighters near the Somali city of Bush Madina.
“Al-Shabaab’s goals, rhetoric, and its over reliance on both coercion and violence mirror al-Qaida,” said U.S. Marine Corps Bradford J. Gering, deputy director of operations, U.S. Africa Command. “It’s our command’s responsibility to support our partners so this terrorist group can’t expand and strike the U.S. homeland as its leaders desire to do.”
Trump Fights Terrorism
This is just yet another example of President Donald Trump keeping his promises.
Ever since he ran in 2016, he promised that when he became president he would bomb terrorists from the sky and avoid boots-on-the-ground operations. And that is exactly what he has done.
Donald Trump is successfully putting an end to America’s enemies. And as a result, he is bringing back America’s reputation as a strong superpower around the world.
Under Barack Obama, our nation was laughed at. But under President Donald Trump, America is bringing peace through strength.
