SOMALIA: Where the Global War on Terror continues.

The Pentagon conducted drone attacks on against Al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab militants in Somalia this week, U.S. Africa Command said.

The two strikes, in which armed but unmanned aircraft hit targets in Somalia’s Banadiir region, were the first since President Donald Trump authorized expanded offensive operations against the militant group in March.

The article doesn’t specify the types of drones used in the attacks. But MQ-9 Reapers are replacing Predators.
