Somalia: Kenyan Fighter Jets Target Al Shabaab in Southern Somalia

Kismayo, Somalia — For the second time Kenyan fighter jets have targeted districts in southern Somalia, Radio Garowe reports.

Howsingo districts in the Lower Jubba region were targeted in the air strikes by Kenyan fighter jets on Sunday.

Unconfirmed reports said that the air strikes successfully destroyed a training camp in the Howsingo district and killed over 18 Al Shabaab agents.

According to military sources, there are also contradicting reports saying that the strikes led to many civilian casualties, with a few Al Shabaab agents being killed in the strikes.

Last week, Kenyan fighter jets targeted Al Shabaab training camps in districts under Garbaharey in Gedo region.

Al Shabaab has yet to comment on the air strikes and overall casualties in the air raids have not been independently confirmed.
