BARDHERE (Sh. M. Network)-An official in Somali government says at least Eighteen Al shabab fighters were killed in the latest Kenyan air raids on rebel-held areas in Somalia’s southwestern region of Gedo.
Speaking with Shabelle Media, Aden Ahmed Hirsi, the spokesman of Gedo administration for TFG said that Air strikes by Kenyan military jets in the southern town of Bardhere killed 18 militants on Thursday afternoon.
The jets bombed the town of Bardhere located in the region of Gedo, which is controlled by Al Shabaab and has been a target by the allied forces from Somali and Kenya for nearly two years.
Al Shabaab officials have not yet commented about the Airstrikes in the district of Bardhere and it is still unclear how many civilian casualties were sustained in the strikes. The Kenyan military has not responded to the alleged airstrikes.
The independent sources said Kenyan aircrafts in the southern town of Bardhere seriously injured two children, after a missile fired from the Kenyan jets hit their house in the town.
Local residents in Al shabab controlled towns in southern Somalia said they are worry that there will be more civilian casualties in repeated strikes by Kenyan defense forces (KDF).
