Somalia: Kenyan War Crafts Strike Alshabaab Base.

According to Alhlu Suna wal Jamaa defense official Sheikh Issack Mursal heavy bombardment of Kenyan war craft in Shabab new base near Garbaharey has killed more than 30 high ranking Alshabab officials.

The unexpected attack happened while the group was busy slaughtering animals in Birta Der which is 18 KM south of Garbaharey in Gedo province.

"Close to more than 30 members including high ranking militia officials and their guards were killed in the attack" said Ahlu Suna Wal Jamaa official.

This is not the first time the group is targeted by the unknown war planes, late last year the group explosive attack expert was killed by a strike in his car.

American operated drone strikes carried out several attacks against the group which is considered by the US government as a terrorist organization. No country has claimed the responsibility of the airstrike so far.
