The institute said the group was now conducting fewer mass attacks on military bases, but attacks on government offices and businesses which refused to pay it taxes had increased markedly. The airstrikes hit both a military camp and battle vehicles in Gandarshe, the official told The Associated Press.
Al-Shabab, which is allied with al-Qaida and is working to implement Shariah law in Somalia, has long used the Gandarshe region to launch attacks against its enemies.
With these attacks, USA forces have carried out at least 46 airstrikes so far this year against al-Shabaab, which is allied to al-Qaida and Africa's most active Islamic extremist group.
It controls parts of rural southern and central Somalia and continues to stage deadly attacks in the capital, Mogadishu, and other cities.
Airstrikes also target a small presence of fighters linked to the Islamic State group.
The airstrikes are amongst the deadliest this year, and are part of a military escalation in the east African country led by the Trump Administration with the support of the Somali government and the African Union, which has security forces stationed there.
"The strike has neutralized an imminent attack", said one Somali government official.
However, al-Shabab continues to be active in Somalia's rural areas and launches suicide vehicle bomb attacks in the capital. The group is suspected of carrying out a massive truck bombing in October 2017 which killed at least 587 people and wounded many more.
