At least half a dozen missiles are said to have been fired in two airstrikes, as the U.S. extends its fight against Islamic State.

Aircraft of the United States on Friday, November 3, struck the first airstrike on positions of Islamic state in Somalia.

"U.S. forces will continue to use all authorized and appropriate measures to protect Americans and to disable terrorist threats". In May, the group claimed responsibility for a suicide attack in northern Somalia that killed five and injured 12.

USA airstrikes against al Shabaab have stepped up this year after President Trump granted a request from AFRICOM's commander to give commanders more authority to conduct airstrikes and raids against al Shabaab without high-level, interagency reviews.

The group briefly seized control of Qandala town late previous year, "making the town the first territory the Islamic State has held inside Somalia", the report says.

The airstrikes were carried out under the authorities given to U.S. Africa Command in March by President Donald Trump.

Investigators found thousands of ISIS-related propaganda images and videos on Saipov's cellphone, the complaint said. A law enforcement official said Kadirov was a friend of Saipov's and may not have any role in the case.

More than 350 people were killed by a truck bomb in Mogadishu in October.

The announcement of the new strikes came hours after President Trump said on Twitter that his administration had attacked the Islamic State "much harder" over the past two days. "They will pay a big price for every attack on us!" Newsweek reached out to AFRICOM for more on this but did not hear back by the time of publication.

The warnings came after four US soldiers were killed in Niger during an ambush by ISIS-affiliated militants. An ISIS-linked group, ISIS in the Greater Sahara, has been blamed for this deadly incident.
