The United States redeployed its ground troops in small numbers to Somalia in May 2022, but its air war has been going on for much longer.
For 12 years the US has denied any civilian casualties from air attacks, admitting just five deaths so far, but civilians say the toll is higher.
In a podcast, Aljazeera heard from three people who uncovered the reality of the civilian death toll and laid the disconnect bare.
In this episode:
- Mohamed Osman Abdi (@mohamedosma4), Somali journalist
- Abdullahi Hassan (@abdullahisom1), Amnesty International researcher
- Chris Woods (@chrisjwoods), founder of Airwars
