Al-Shabab Attacks US military Base in Kenya 2 days After US Airstrike in Iran

Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack on the US military base in Kenya on Sunday, December 5, 2020.

Al-Shabab confirmed that it invaded the military base in Kenya's Lamu county used by US and Kenyan military personnel.

The attack is coming barely two days after President Donald Trump of the United States ordered the killing of Qasem Soleimani, the commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

A statement issued by Al-Shabab said: "The Mujahideen fighters covertly entered enemy lines, successfully stormed the heavily fortified military base and have now taken effective control of a part of the base".

 The terrorist group claimed that  "severe casualties on both American and Kenyan troops stationed there", were recorded during the attack.

As at the time of publishing this report, the US government was yet to issue an official statement on the attack.
