As per the reports by the media, in an incident that took place in central Somalia killed at least 60 al-Shabab militants by one of its air strikes.
The “precision” strike around Harardere did not injure or kill civilians, it added in a statement.
The US said the attack was carried out as part of a joint effort with Somali forces to hit the al-Shabab group.
This was the deadliest air strike since November 2017 when 100 militants were killed, the statement added.
Al-Shabab, which is linked to al-Qaeda, has not yet commented.
“Alongside our Somali and international partners, we are committed to preventing al-Shabab from taking advantage of safe havens from which they can build capacity and attack the people of Somalia,” the US Africa Command said.
The US military has conducted more than two dozen air strikes, including drone strikes, in Somalia this year, the Associated Press news agency reports.
