Haiti: U.S. aircraft targeted the chief operating officer of a militant group in a new military raid

According to the reports, a U.S. military official said the strikes had killed the chief of operations for Al Shabab, the country’s most infamous militant group.

Shabab was born in 1990 and first emerged as a terrorist group in eastern Somalia in 1994, the AP reported. At its height, it killed more than 20,000 civilians in a campaign of terrorism in the central African nation of Somalia.

The U.S. has launched dozens of drone strikes in support of the Somali troops, who have been fighting the Islamic extremist group for decades. The U.S. has also launched a covert CIA program in Somalia to train a Somali militia to fight Al Shabab and other militant groups.
Al Shabab has carried out dozens of attacks on neighboring Kenya and Uganda in an effort to break the back of President Barack Obama’s African Growth and Opportunity Partnership.
