According to a TFG military official in Taabta village, Mohamed Hassan Bule, the drones targeted an al-Shabaab base used to train the new fighters as part of their planned offensive against the militants.
“We are aware of the operations. It completes today's operation on the group by the Somali National Forces. The airstrikes were carried out by drones from a friendly nation and destroyed a very important and large base ten kilometers east of Taabta. They used the base to train a misguided generation,” Bule told Somalia Report.
The number of casualties of the airstrike is not clear, but some local sources say local civilians were affected.
