Somalia: Kenyan Jets Kill 2, Wound 3 Civilians in South Somalia

24 March 2012

Bardere — At least two innocent civilians were killed and three others injured late on Friday in an aerial attack by Kenyan fighter jets in Gedo region of southern Somalia, residents said.

New reports say the Kenyan jets bombed on Takarre village, 55 Km away west of Baredere district of Gedo region, under the control of Al-Shabab militants, killing more than two people, including woman and children.

Witnesses told Shabelle Media that the injured people were rushed to a hospital in the town of Bardere where one of the victimized died later from his injury sustained in the Kenyan air raids.

The traditional elders of Gedo region have immediately condemned in their strongest terms the Kenyan air strikes hit civilian residential areas in the region stating as ‘civilian genocide’.

Kenyan military officials in the region have not commented about the attack so far.

Air strikes targeting frequently areas controlled by the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabab in southern Somalia regions became common, causing uncountable civilian casualties.

  3. Somalia: Kenya’s Naval Forces Shell Kismayo

    29 May 2012

    Kismayo, Somalia — Kenya’s military stated that its naval forces shelled the stronghold of Kismayo, Radio Garowe reports.

    The Kenyan military spokesman Cyrus Oguna, who spoke to VOA, said that his forces had shelled the port city of Kismayo after Al Shabaab militants fired on Kenyan warships patrolling the Somali coast.

    This is the first shelling by a Kenyan warship on Kismayo, whose coast is regularly patrolled by Kenyan warships.

    Local sources in Kismayo say that heavy artillery from the Kenyan warship was fired in the early hours of Tuesday injuring some residents.

    According to local sources a young boy and his mother were injured after a shell hit their home early Tuesday morning.

    Kenyan forces fighting Al Shabaab in southern Somalia have made little advancements in the past 7 months fighting in Somalia.

    It is unclear if it is in Kenya’s strategy to attack the port city on the coast as well on ground. Ethiopia has stated that it is ready to assist Kenya and the TFG in their fight to capture Kismayo.
