Al shabaab slaughter Kenyan soldiers in Kismayu
Al shabaab terror group has posted photos of four soldiers they killed in Kismayo on Friday. The group claim the four are Kenyan soldiers but a closer look at their uniforms shows only two are KDF soldiers.
Photos of the four were posted on their twitter handle @HSMPress . In one photo a KDF soldier is pictured with a packet of Sportsman cigarette,Equity bank card, his ID card and an Airtel line. The other shows ‘locals’ dragging a body through the streets of Kismayu.
KDF spokesman Major Emmanuel Chirchir confirmed the killings. He said three injured Kenyans had been flown to Dhobley fro treatment.
“To the people of Kismayu…be on the look out where the remains of our Hero’s will be buried. That will be the our welcome gesture,” Tweeted Chirchir.
The group further claims that the mujahideen (Al shabaab soldiers) attacked the Kenyan base at Afmadow and razed it down.
“At least 7 other KDF vehicles in the base, which were damaged during the course of the battle, have also been destroyed by the Mujahideen,” claims Al shabaab. But AMISOM said it was them who destroyed seven Al Shabaab vehicles.
We can not confirm this but Al shabaab says they captured two Kenyan trucks fully loaded with ammunition from the Kenyan base in Afmadow.
But AMISOM has refuted the claims. AMISOM Force Commander Lieutenant Andrew Gutti said it was mere propaganda that they had lost ground in Afmadow.
@HSMPress taunted the Kenyans in the photos captions.
“Certainly this Kenyan Kafir won’t be smoking his Sportsman cigarettes in hell,” said one. “He wanted to come to Kismayo. His wish has been fulfilled,” shouted another.
“Just like all invaders before them, Kenyan soldiers were mercilessly dragged in the streets of Kismayo by an angry mob,” shouts another caption with the photos of Somalis dragging a body in Kismayu.
“And after all that,KDF corpses are now left for the dogs to devour. Welcome to Kismayo fellas.”
“Hundreds of Kismayo residents turned out to see the KDF Corpses chanting ‘death to the Kenya invaders.”
“This one had a really short career in the army, didn’t he? He never thought he’d bite the dust this quick!” another tweet reads with and ID of a younger KDF soldier.
KDF condemned the display of their soldiers in Kismayo;”In fact KDF has never disrespect the thousands of the Al shabaab fighters neutralized. We have respected the dead Al Shabaab.”
