“The Al-Shabaab militants, wearing Kenyan army uniforms…”
“War is deceit,” said Muhammad.
Incidentally, if Abdiasis Musab were to show up in an American airport as a “refugee,” how much trouble do you think he would have entering the United States? None at all, I’d wager.
“Muslim Extremists in Kenya Kill Six, Injure Dozens in Attack Targeting Christians,” by Leah Marieann Klett, Gospel Herald, October 10, 2016 (thanks to Robert):
An Islamic extremist group has claimed responsibility for a deadly attack in northeastern Kenya that left six dead and dozens injured, saying it intentionally targeted Christians.
“We are behind the Mandera attack. During which, we killed six Christians,” said Sheikh Abdiasis Musab, leader of Al-Shabab, an Islamic extremist group affiliated to al-Qaeda, the BBC reports.
The attack early on Thursday morning was targeted at a gated residential building mainly housing non-ethnic Somalis and non-Muslims, less than a mile from the Somalia border town of Beled Hawa. Al-Shabab said it carried out the attack, which left 27 people injured, because it wanted non-Muslims to leave what it regarded as Muslim areas.
During an interview with persecution watchdog Open Doors, one witness explained the attack: “The Al-Shabaab militants, wearing Kenyan army uniforms, entered the housing compound posing as Kenyan security officers on patrol. Once allowed in, they first attacked a mobile money transfer shop with an explosive device before throwing more explosives into the compound. The people were caught off-guard and shot as they tried to flee. They specifically targeted non-locals (those assumed to be Christians). Among the 6 dead is a local barber named Cege. Among the injured is an individual who hid in the ceiling, but the explosion from the grenades shook him, causing him to fall through the roof. He is currently in the hospital.”
The attackers also reportedly planted landmines around the compound, one of which exploded as security officers tried to access the building….
