Navy SEAL Killed, 3 Others Wounded In Gunfight In Familiar Place

A Navy SEAL has been killed and 2 other SEALs have been wounded in a massive gunfight. An interpreter was also wounded in the fight.

According to officials, this is the first combat death of a U.S. service member since 1993 in Somalia, Africa. Many remember Somalia as the country that claimed the life of numerous special forces members in the battle that's come to be known as "black hawk down."

"U.S. forces were conducting an advise and assist mission alongside members of the Somali National Army" near Bari, about 40 miles west of Mogadishu, according to a statement from U.S. Africa Command. The mission involved the use of U.S. helicopters and a Navy SEAL assault force partnered with Somalis, according to Fox News.

Reports state that the officials were attacked "early" on in their mission. The SEALs and service members were on site carrying out a mission against Al Shabab. Al Shabab is an extremist terrorist group responsible for numerous deadly attacks in the region and beyond.

The mission is still under review to see if it was deemed a "success" or not. President Trump did not actually issue the attack mission. It was issued a while back under President Obama, according to reports.

Please pray for the fallen heroes and their families. Also, please join us in praying for their families as well.
