Puntland Security Force captures two ISIS fighters surviving US airstrike

Saturday June 8, 2024

Garowe (HOL) - The Puntland Security Force (PSF) has apprehended two ISIS foreign nationals who they said survived last week’s US airstrike in northeastern Somalia.

According to a statement from the PSF on Saturday, the men identified as Imraan Mohamed Alawi and Mabruuk Nassor Saidi are from Tanzania. The security forces arrested the men 30 km away from the area where the bombing took place, following a tip-off and subsequent pursuit by the PSF.

A joint airstrike carried out by Somali and U.S. forces killed three Islamic State (IS)-Somalia fighters in a remote area near Dhaardaar, about 81 km southeast of Bosaso, last week.

The so-called IS wing in Somalia has its main base in the Puntland region, northeastern Somalia, and has occasionally clashed with Puntland forces and al-Shabab militants.
