The drones targeted the Haway region, government forces confirmed that a senior Al-Shabaab official Dahir Maalim was killed and other members of his entourage.
Meanwhile, airstrikes hit Sablale, Lower Shabelle, and government officials said the target was an al-Shabaab official, adding that Ahmed Nur, a senior al-Shabaab member, was killed in that attack.
