U.S. Kills 3 ISIS Militants in Somalia Airstrike

US Africa Command (AFRICOM) conducted an airstrike on the Islamic State (ISIS) militants in Somalia killing three. The May 31 August airstrike occurred in remote area of Dhaardaar, 81 km Southeast of Bosaso, inside Somalia. No non-combatants were injured in the operation.

AFRICOM said the attack underscores the U.S’s ongoing commitment to combat terrorism and promote stability in the Horn of Africa. The airstrike is aimed at weakening ISIS’s operational capabilities and financial resources, not only in Somalia but also in other parts of the world.

The U.S Department of Treasury has reported that since 2022, the ISIS branch in Somalia has been the group’s primary revenue generator, amassing approximately $6 million through extortion and local taxes.
