US airstrike wounded six civilians including children and mothers in Kunyo Barrow village in Lower Shabelle region on Sunday.

Resident report the attack occurred at 7:00 pm on Sunday after US military airstrike fired almost five missiles to civilian’s residential home in Kunyo Barrow town.

Former Minister of Internal Security, Abdirizak Mohamed calls for AFRICOM to be held accountable for the aimless killing of civilians as a result of the deadly drone strikes they carry out in Somalia.

“In coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, U.S. Africa Command conducted an airstrike targeting al-Shabaab terrorists in the vicinity of Qunyo Barrow, Somalia, May 17,” AFRICOM said in a statement.

Despite resident evidence including civilians wounded photos, houses raid and missiles used, Africom asserted that the drones killed two Al-Shabab militants in the area.

AFRICOM carry out many airstrikes in every mouth and attributed to militants killings without evidence search as names of the militant killed, his work station, nationality and the rank.
