Four American service members who were wounded in an extremist attack in Somalia that killed one special operations soldier have been treated and discharged, the USA military said Saturday.

Roughly 500 USA troops are stationed in Somalia as part of an ongoing mission to assist the country's national security forces in counter-terrorism operations.

Friday's joint operation was part of a multi-day mission including about 800 Somali and Kenyan troops.

The Islamic militant group, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the attack friday that killed one US service member and wounded four others. The operation aimed to clear the Somalia-based extremist group al-Shabab from contested areas. The last killing of a US service member in Somalia was in May 2017 during an operation about 40 miles west of Mogadishu, Stars and Stripes reported.

Islamist group al Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the gun and mortar attack yesterday afternoon.

Since being pushed out of Mogadishu in 2011, the group has lost control of most of Somalia's cities and towns, but it retains a strong presence in regions outside the capital. "Three U.S. service members and the one partner force wounded were medically evacuated to receive additional treatment".

Mostly composed of special operators such as Army Green Berets, Navy SEALs and Marine Raiders, the USA forces in Somalia have conducted frequent raids and drone strikes on Shabaab training camps throughout Somalia.

The U.S. has about 1,000 special operations personnel in Africa. The US had pulled out of the country after 1993, when two helicopters were shot down in Mogadishu and bodies of Americans were dragged through the streets.

The names of victims will not be released until the families have been notified.
