Africom vowed the US forces will continue to use all authorized and appropriate measures to protect Americans and to disable terrorist threats by partnering with African Union and Somalia security forces targeting the terrorists' hideouts.

Several militants were killed during a pair of initial airstrikes on November 3, while several more died during a November 14 USA strike on an al-Shabab target 60 miles northwest of Mogadishu, command officials confirmed at the time.

The latest drone strike comes after Somalia and the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) forces have stepped up a massive security operation to flush out Al-Shabaab militants in the southern region.

Military officials told VOA that Tuesday's strike hit an al-Shabab training camp in the country's Bay region, about 200 kilometers northwest of the capital, Mogadishu. The official, who was not authorized to speak to reporters on the record and discussed the matter on condition of anonymity, said senior al-Shabab commanders were among the dead.

The United States for the first time earlier this month used the new authorizations to conduct airstrikes in Somalia against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants. It made no mention of casualties and did not identify the specific targets.

Working with the Libyan Government of National Accord, U.S. forces on November 17 and November 19 struck ISIS fighters near Fuqaha, Libya.
