Nairobi — Farah Mo'allin, the deputy speaker of Kenyan parliament has told Shabelle Media Network based in Mogadishu that Al shabab fighters still active and strike back on Somali, AU forces.
Speaking with Shabelle Media, Mr. Mo'llin said: "Al shabab militants didn't pull out of a key port city in southern Somalia, the group is in Kismayo and Kenyan, Somali troops have not marched into the city."
When asked the Kenyan air strikes on civilian areas, he answered the KDF military jets bomb and target only Al shabab bases and hideouts in Somalia and he confessed civilian casualties in the aerial attacks.
Kenya has sent troops and tanks backing by fighter planes into Somalia, to purse and flush out Al shabab militants whom Nairobi blames for killings, kidnappings against foreign aid workers and blasts in its soil.
KDF which are part of African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) 'massacred' last week at least 9 innocent Somali civilians in the town of Jana Abdalla in Lower Jubba region, sparking furious and extreme dislike among Somalis.
