A U.S. airstrike killed 13 Daesh (ISIS) militants in Somalia's semi-autonomous Puntland region Wednesday, the U.S. military said, days after another strike killed three.

U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) said late on Thursday the latest strike targeted a Daesh-Somalia camp in Golis Mountains.

"At this time, it is assessed the airstrike on May 8 killed 13 terrorists," it said.

AFRICOM said in April it had killed Abdulhakim Dhuqub, identifying him as Daesh's deputy leader in Somalia.
