The airstrike was carried out to foil plans of the militant group to attack Ethiopian contingent of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).
About 70 al-Shabaab militants were killed and two vehicles packed with weapons were destroyed in the air strike.

He said “we achieved 100 percent of our plans.”
Ethiopia is one of the troop contributing countries to AMISOM.
Other countries contributing troops to the AU Mission are Burundi, Djibouti, Kenya and Uganda.
