Officials say more than 100 al-Shabaab militants were killed in a U.S. airstrike in Somalia.

On Tuesday, authorities said the strike hit a training camp about 125 miles northwest of Mogadishu.

It was conducted in coordination with the Somali government, and is the largest number of reported deaths from a single U.S. strike since President Trump expanded operations against the al Qaeda-linked group.

Although the extremists have gradually lost control of key cities in Somalia, their terror continues with suicide attacks, gun attacks, and car bombs.

The U.S. has carried out about 30 airstrikes against al-Shabaab as the terror group attempts to topple down the country’s government, and push extreme Islamic ideologies.

    Slowly Trump is moving on ridding the world of ISIS and related terror groups. Thank OANN for reporting.

      He could also repatriate muslims back to their homelands out of Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York.
      That would do a lot to rid us of terrorism.

    After the events of Black Hawk Down. The dolts in DC thought it would be a kind gesture to bring in the relatives of those thousand Somalis how died that day.
    To their amazement the refugees show their gratitude by attacking the citizens of the US.

    Do not let up. Do not let up. Keep pressing on. Every strike should make them forget about the previous. Let the enemy forget their reasons for starting this and only realize that it was a serious mistake to provoke the USA!

      Agreed. No let up. No time for she bop doo wop whatever to regroup. hit em relentless and the hit them some more.

    The saddest thing is they were probably all teenagers. This is a despicable group man. I wish people in their own country would clap back instead of us having to do it.

    • Ana Garcia

      It is very sad that this is something that has to be done, especially if civilians were amongst the targets.

      • Sons of Liberty
