Fighter jets conduct airstrike on Al-Shabab held town in Somalia

Unidentified warplanes were reported to have conducted a large-scale airstrike against Al-Shabaab militants in southern Somalia, amid ground military operations in the country.

The jets targeted at least 4 areas suspected to be Al-Shabaab bases in the town of Sakow in Middle Jubba region, according to the villagers, who asked to remain anonymous.

It is unclear so far which country belongs to the warplanes and as well as the exact casualties and damage caused by the air shelling during late last night.

The US military in Africa carries out most of the airstrikes in Somalia, especially in areas controlled by al-Shabaab and pro-Islamic State militants in Puntland, northeast of Somalia.
