US Soldier Killed, 4 Wounded in Attack in Somalia

US Soldier Killed, 4 Wounded in Attack in Somalia

Witnesses said the attack took place near the town of Sanguni, while the USA and Somali troops were digging trenches and setting up other defenses.

The last time an American soldier in Somalia was killed was 13 months ago, when a member of the Navy SEALs was killed in an attack by al Shabaab on us and Somali forces.

Another U.S. service member in Somalia was killed in May 2017 during an operation about 40 miles west of Mogadishu.

An American special operations soldier has been killed in an attack in Somalia that also wounded four other United States military personnel and one Somali soldier.

The attack comes one day after al-Shabaab overwhelmed the Somali National Army's base by the city of Baidoa, the capital of the Southwestern Bay region of Somalia, on June 7.

The U.S. Africa Command reported killing 27 al-Shabaab terrorists Saturday, and in 2014 the U.S. said it killed the group's leader Ahmed Abdi Godane in a drone strike.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the families of our serviceman who was killed and his fellow servicemen who were wounded in Somolia".

US President Donald Trump offered his condolences via Twitter.

Three of the four US service members were transferred for medical treatment while the fourth received medical care on the spot, the Washington Post reported.

The US had pulled out of the Horn of Africa nation after 1993, when two helicopters were shot down in Mogadishu and bodies of Americans were dragged through the streets. Al-Shabab has been blamed for the October truck bombing in Mogadishu that killed more than 500 people.

According to reports, the man from Texas required 26 doses of anti-venom after the snakebite. A rattlesnake can still bite and release venom after its death because of a reflex action.

Late previous year USA drone strikes also began targeting a small presence of fighters linked to the Islamic State group in Somalia's north.

The Pentagon didn't identify the USA commando who was killed, pending notification of next of kin.

Al-Shabaab is fighting to overthrow Somalia's central government and establish its own rule based on its interpretation of Islamic law.

The US troops were on a training mission with local Somali and Kenyan forces when the attack occurred.

It follows the death of four U.S. soldiers in Niger last October in an ambush attack that raised questions about the continuing role of American forces in Africa.
