The U.S. has renewed its campaign against the terrorists groups known as Al-Shabab (Youth) in the eastern African nation Somalia. The air strike has killed more than 150 terrorists in their training camp on Saturday, March 5, 2016. This is a big blow to the radical Al-Shabab in the Horn of Africa that has been devastated by their indiscriminate killings against civilians especially, Christians in Kenya. In a move to stop what the U.S. military said was an imminent threat against U.S. troops and African peacekeeping forces in Somalia, a U.S. strike in Somalia killed as many as 150 suspected Al-Shabaab fighters, the Pentagon said Monday.
The Pentagon initially characterized the attack as a drone strike, but later clarified that the operation involved both manned and unmanned aircraft.
The strike took place Saturday, 120 miles north of Mogadishu at a training site called Raso Camp.
