US Drone Strikes on Mubaarak Leaves at least 7 Civilians Dead & Over 20 Injured


The small Shabaab controlled town in the Lower Shabelle province was targeted in US drone strikes last night leaving a state of fear and panic among residents.

According to residents many have fled the town in the aftermath out of fear of further strikes whilst others remain indoors unable to continue with their day to day activities.

Most of the injured civilians were transferred to Mogadishu, some of who unfortunately succumbed to their injuries before completing the journey.

The United States often carries out drone strikes in Somalia while claiming to target Shabaab operatives, although most casualties of these strikes are innocent civilians.
