The U.S. military on Tuesday announced that it had killed 60 al-Shabaab militants in an airstrike in Somalia, the largest such strike on the terrorist group in nearly a year.

U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) said the strike was carried out Friday near the city of Harardere — in the central part of the country — in coordination with the Somali government, according to an AFRICOM statement.

“This precision airstrike was the largest airstrike against al-Shabaab since November 21, 2017, when U.S. forces conducted an airstrike against an al-Shabaab camp killing approximately 100 terrorists,” the command notes.

AFRICOM said that no civilians were injured or killed in the strike.

and then

From the piece:  

Last year the terrorist group bombed a truck in Mogadishu, an attack that killed more than 500 people and was the world's deadliest terror attack since 9/11. The group has since been pushed from the city but still controls parts of southern and central Somalia.

 

It seems to me they did a good thing by eliminating these murderers.  It shows the value of special ops forces as well.  They can get close, observe and target with much less chance of obliterating a bunch of civilians by mistake.
