DHOBLEY (Sh.M.Network)—Kenyan military jets bombed on Friday on Al shabab controlled village located on the outskirts of Dhobley, a town located near Kenyan border, reports said.
Local residents said the Kenyan fighter jets have carried out an air strike on military targets belonging to the al-Shabaab Islamic militant group in a hideout area, 15 Km away from Dhobley city, causing unconfirmed casualties.
“The air raid happened as the Al shabab fighters were mobilizing the suburbs between Dhobley and Afmadow, and the jets dropped more than five bombs on the armory and camps,” a witness said on condition of anonymity.
It was immediately unclear where there has been any casualty in the aerial attack.
Al Shabab and Kenyan army officials were unavailable to reach for comments on the air strikes so far.
Kenyan troops are currently in Somalia as part of a cross-border operation aimed at driving al-Shabaab militants away from the border separating the two nations.
Since their arrival in Somalia last year, Kenyan forces have managed to capture several al-Shabaab strongholds, mainly the southern port city of Kismayo,500 Km south of Mogadishu.
