Somali and the United States forces killed four al-Shabab militants in a new airstrike conducted in the militants’ stronghold in southern Somalia on Saturday.

The U.S. Africa Command (Africom), which has in the past conducted strikes against the group in Somalia, said that the latest airstrike targeted an al-Shabab’s camp in the vicinity of Gandarshe.

“These airstrikes continue to degrade al-Shabab and support international efforts to bring enhanced security and stability to the region,” Miguel Castellanos, Africom deputy director of operations said in a statement issued on Saturday evening.
