The American base was attacked in Kenya: the military entered the battle


Command of the Kenyan Armed Forces confirms information about the emergency in the area of ​​the American military base. Initially, reports came that the US Army base in this African country was attacked.


According to recent reports, the military facility of US troops in Kenya was attacked by militants of the Al-Shabab terrorist group associated with Al-Qaida (an organization banned in the Russian Federation).

The US military base is located in the Kenyan Lamu County, near the border with Somalia. We are talking about the Manda Bay military airfield.

Al-Shabab fighters fired at a military base and tried to infiltrate its territory. The US military, as well as representatives of the Kenyan army, were forced to join the battle. As a result of the shootout, at least four militants were eliminated, several more terrorists were injured. Whether they were captured by the US military or evacuated by other militants is not reported.

It is noted that the militants tried to damage the runway of the airfield, which is used by the US Air Force and Navy. However, according to reports, the runway of the Manda Bay airfield was not affected.

From a report from the US African military command:

At the moment, the airfield is operating normally. We continue to monitor the situation.

Recall that the Al-Shabab terrorist group is most active in Somalia, but often carries out its “raids” in neighboring countries.

        A wave has gone to the USA .. But Israel will get its way

        Will it overwhelm the United States? It seems that Dashing trouble has begun. They are sawing the branch on which they themselves are sitting. They wanted the best, but it will turn out as always.
        Go to All-In

        Rather, a B-bank for money. Soon a chuck. They want to justify their actions by war, like a smoke screen.

      That is how terrorists around the world are now urging their supporters to avenge Suleymani, only to stand along with the terrorists is not our way. Russia is a country that knows firsthand what terrorism is, and this phenomenon must be fought. So here you need to competently and carefully approach these situations. We condemn the methods of the Americans but also stand on a par with Al-Shabab and Al Qaeda, and support their activities against the United States, even if in the comments it is not necessary. Well-known thesis: the enemy of my enemy, my friend does not work here.

        No one supports, but does not condemn due to the fact that the "hegemon" at the end of the coast has lost. We simply state the fact that mattresses began to receive mattresses from terrorist structures created with their direct participation and with their own money. But Russia has long told them that they should not divide the terrorists into good and bad. Now let them rake up until they understand that terrorism itself must be eliminated as a phenomenon, which requires not only joint efforts, but also the same approach.

      This happens. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." Psychologists know this.
      We have in our head a simple “switch” - “friend / enemy”.
      The fact that the enemy of the enemy can be your worst enemy - does not fit into the subcortex.

        Everything fits perfectly. The most sworn "friends" can unite before a common threat. In general, in world history there are many examples of a coalition when enemies united with enemies against a common threat.

    The US military base is located in the Kenyan Lamu County, near the border with Somalia. We are talking about the Manda Bay military airfield.

    Al-Qaeda is Sunni terrorists, and Iran is Shiites. You don’t have to see Iran’s hand everywhere, the Persians are not so powerful ... before that, some stubborn guys on VO claimed that the Iraqi attack on the US embassy was revenge of the Kremlin for disrupting the Nord Stream wassat

    Well, it just coincided. If anything - Shabab considers Iran to be the refuge of Satan and plans to cut the Persians in its jihad too. They are just far away. In the African attacks - Shiites are usually slaughtered first of all Europeans.

    But the attack is surprisingly successful. Kenyan guard overslept. They struck the perimeter. They blew up a shahidmobile / or shahidmoped at the entrance; these are more common there. They broke through the ingimashi groups inside. But like everyone was killed. The Americans were not hurt, only the Kenyans.

    Among the successful ones, they set fire to a board used by U.S. intelligence in the region.



    In addition, an application for a fire in a helipad and up to 4 helicopters on fire. However, there were no photo-videos of this.

    World war - in the name of saving the dollar. And then in the name of creating a single "world currency" - for a worldwide dictatorship.

    Israel as always on the sidelines. After all, the US Department is the muscles of the Israeli lobby. Sorry, very hard; - Israel carefully conceals about PMCs supervised by high-ranking military men. They are also somewhere near the "wide".

    Now we will observe a difficult state - China. His "assets" are also present on the territory of the black continent. And China's assets are not all its national assets (there is an opinion). Yes, and PMCs in China, how will they operate? Children of high-ranking Chinese "comrades" - they, in agreement with their Western partners, continue to study in the West (Anglo-Saxon universities - a blacksmith for "Western civilization").
