KDF base in Kismayo airport came under attack last night
Residents in Kismayo reported that units from Al-Shabaab carried out an attack last night on KDF forces who are based near the Kismayo Airport.
The exact number of casualties caused by the fighting is not known but residents say they believe there were casualties in last night’s attack.
The exact number of casualties cannot be confirmed until now, this comes amidst a time where the Al-Shabaab movement has threatened to step up its attacks against foreign forces.
Kismayo which is located in the Lower Jubba province has seen a lot of violence since the past year after Kenyan troops pushed Al-Shabaab out of the city. Gun attacks, explosions and shelling are not uncommon in the city as the Kenyan forces still face attacks from Al-Shabaab members who still continue to fight the Kenyan forces.
