Kenya bombs al Shabaab after school attack

Brian LilleyArchive

Kenyan warplanes bombed two al Shabaab camps in Somalia on Monday in retaliation for last week's deadly attack on Garissa University.

Reuters reported that government officials in Nairobi believe they are targettng the camps responsible for the attack that killed 148 people.

Jets pounded the camps in Gondodowe and Ismail, both in the Gedo region bordering Kenya, on Sunday, the Kenyan Defence Forces source said. Cloud cover made it difficult to establish how much damage the bombings caused or estimate the death toll.

"We targeted the two areas because according to information we have, those (al Shabaab) fellows are coming from there to attack Kenya," he said.

Gunmen from al Shabaab stormed the campus of Garissa University on Thursday in the deadliest terror attack on Kenyan soil since the 1998 bombing of the American embassy.

It is nice to see a little pushback and it’s their own air force too. Was or will there be any further retaliations? What about their army? I’m sure they are all ready to go. Imagine fighting their own battles. I like that.

(Love your sense of kindness True North.) I only hope no one from within the army tipped off the al Shabab “fellows” before the first bombs hit.

Isn’t that border crossing against international law? Shouldn’t Angry Tom be pressing charges? But for those who have qualms against lethal force, may I suggest that before forest fire season starts in Canada that we send water bombers and a tanker full of pig manure. When the snow finally melts off the fields around me farmers will be applying it here so it violates no law other than hillal . It would be an effective form of area denial and flushing ISIS out of entrenched positions. It would also send a message. I say area fertilize Dabiq.
