The Department of Defense announced in a press release today two US service members and two British personnel have died. The Four were killed with others wounded during a counter terrorism operation in Africa, Somalia, a US official confirmed.
"The service members killed were assigned to U.S. Army Special Operations Command, Fort Bragg, N.C." a US army official stated.
The UK Ministry of Defense confirmed the British deaths but declined any further comment “We do not comment on UK Special Forces”
The circumstances of the Joint mission and deaths are unclear and is unlikely to be revealed to the public. There is a history of US and UK special forces working together such as in Syria, confirming the continued close relationship between the two countries.
