Kenya Bombs Al Shabaab Camps In Somalia In Response To Garissa Attack

The Kenyan air force on Sunday bombed two Al Shabaab camps in Somalia in response to the Al Shabab terrorist attack on Garissa University College according to a Kenyan defence Forces (KDF) source.

Al Shabaab militants on Thursday killed 148 people mostly students when they stormed Garissa University in Kenya.

Kenya jets pounded the camps in Gondodowe and Ismail both in Gedo region bordering Kenya according to the military source. It was difficult to establish the death toll and how much damage done due to cloud cover.

“We targeted the two areas because according to information we have, those (Al Shabaab) fellows are coming from there to attack Kenya”, the source said.

Al Shabaab militants have killed over 400 people in Kenya since 2013. It has been difficult for Kenya to stop the flow of Al Shabaab militants and weapons across its 700km border with Somalia.
