Three people were just confirmed dead. A radical group of jihadists has continued their rampage, and swift action must be taken. It is happening.
“A jihadist attack on a military base in Kenya killed three people Sunday, including a U.S. service member and two civilian defense contractors,” according to reports.
The attack was reportedly carried about by all-Shabab, a terrorist organization based in East Africa and allied with Al-Qaeda. Jihadists “briefly breached the walls of the Camp Simba airstrip.”
“The attack on the compound today involved indirect and small arms fire,” said a U.S. military press release. “Kenya Defense Forces and U.S. Africa Command repelled the al-Shabaab attack.”
Tragically, before the attack could be fully repelled, terrorists killed three people; their names have not been released. However, U.S. Army General Stephen Townsend released a statement.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of our teammates who lost their lives today,” said Townsend, who pledged to “pursue those responsible for this attack.”
