Navy SEAL Killed, 2 SEALS Wounded in Somalia Gunfight

Navy SEAL Killed, 2 SEALS Wounded in Somalia Gunfight

The incident occurred Thursday during an operation against local al Qaeda affiliate al Shabaab west of Mogadishu.

Milliken was part of the operation that had been coordinated between the Somali National Army and U.S. Africa Command.

"On May 5, the Somali National Army killed an al Shabaab leader, Moalim Osman Abdi Badil, and three fighters", a statement from ministry said. The United States pulled out of Somalia after that incident in which two helicopters were shot down in the capital, Mogadishu, and bodies of Americans were dragged through the streets. Warsame is the deputy leader of al Shabaab and USA authorities have offered $5 million for information that brings him to justice.

USA drone strikes have killed several of Shabab's top commanders, according to US assessments. We also wounded many.

The operation Thursday was not conducted under the new authorities, Davis said.

In the past, al-Shabab has exaggerated the number of soldiers it has killed during clashes.

"An air landing operation by US Special Forces was thwarted in Lower Shabelle province and a number of their soldiers were killed and wounded", the group said, according to the SITE Intelligence Group.

A Somali soldier patrols next to the burnt-out wreckage of a vehicle that was used by suspected al-Shabab fighters on April 16, 2017.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Retiring From NASCAR At Season's End
USA motorsport legend Dale Earnhardt Jr said on Tuesday he will retire from racing at the end of the 2017 NASCAR season. Earnhardt did say he was anxious about the fallout of his departure as NASCAR's Most Popular Driver the last 14 years.

The battle saw two American Black Hawk helicopters shot down, sparking a desperate rescue mission that resulted in hundreds of deaths, including many civilians and the USA personnel. Hundreds of US troops now rotate through makeshift bases in Somalia, the largest military presence since the United States pulled out of the country after the "Black Hawk Down" battle in 1993. Publicly, this support includes aerial surveillance and drone strikes; sources suggest that it also includes the regular involvement of USA special forces in covert raids.

It has already done so in Yemen, where US forces are conducting intensified operations against al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, and in Syria, where President Trump launched missile strikes on Syrian government facilities last month in retaliation for a chemical attack.

Africa Command commander Gen. Thomas Waldhauser met with Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Farmaajo last month to discuss the U.S.

Davis said there are about 50 USA special operations troops now working with African Union Mission in Somalia and local national commandos as part of an "advise and assist mission" for the Somali National Army, but "there are occasional additional groups that come in".
