The mission to end terrorism during this administration continues.
On Sunday, numerous airstrikes were conducted in Somalia, killing more than two dozen terrorists.
The attacks were conducted in conjunction with the Somalian government.
The strikes took place about 26 miles outside of the city of Bosasso.
The group that was targeted was al-Shabaab, an Islamist military group.
Pledging allegiance to al-Qaeda, they were considered a primary target for military strikes.
After the strikes were conducted, the U.S. military proclaimed a significant victory.
In a prepared statement, U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) stated, “U.S. forces will continue to use all authorized and appropriate measures to protect U.S. citizens and to disable terrorist threats.”
“This includes partnering with AMISON and Somali National Security Forces (SNSF) in combined counterterrorism operations and targeting terrorists, their training camps, and their safe havens throughout Somalia and the region.”
According to reports, no citizens were believed to have been harmed during the air strike.
President Trump promised Americans he would do everything in his power to end ISIS once he took office.
Over the course of the first year, Trump had sent ISIS into hiding.
After a very brief tick down in attacks, the administration ramped everything back up this year.
As of March, the administration had noted eight successful strikes against the terrorist organization.
The sudden increase in attacks had many people speculating ISIS was gaining momentum again.
However, from what we have seen from reports, it was just that some very high-valued targets decided to pop their heads up again and our military took care of business.
This latest group of strikes is proof-positive this president has no intention on EVER letting ISIS stick its head up without having it blown off.
