32 killed in Kenyan airstrike on Shabaab Somalia camp

Mareeg.com-“Kenyan fighter jets bombarded on Tuesday a camp of Al-Shabaab in Bardera, Gedo region, killing 32 and injuring 10,” Ali Matan, Gedo deputy governor, told a local radio station on Wednesday.

At least 32 militants were killed and 10 others injured when Kenyan warplanes hit a camp of Al-Shabaab rebels in southwestern Somalia, a local official said on Wednesday.

“Kenyan fighter jets bombarded on Tuesday a camp of Al-Shabaab in Bardera, Gedo region, killing 32 and injuring 10,” Ali Matan, Gedo deputy governor, told a local radio station on Wednesday.

The airstrike also destroyed several military vehicles belonging to the group, he noted.

Bardera is considered a main stronghold for the Al-Qaeda-linked group in the southwest.

Al-Shabaab continues to control several towns in the south of war-torn Somalia.

In November, Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud vowed that 2014 would witness the end of the Al-Qaeda-allied group.

Somalia has remained in the grip of on-again, off-again violence since the outbreak of civil war in 1991.

The country had appeared to inch closer to stability with the recent installation of a new government and the intervention of African Union troops tasked with combatting Al-Shabaab.
