In what appears to be a desperate move after Al Shabaab militants ran out of options following continued strikes by KDF and allied forces, the militia has now turned to attack vulnerable innocent children.
In a remote town of Chakama in Kilifi County, the Somali-based militants stormed into a children’s home shooting haphazardly at the hapless children. They timed when the children were asleep and came shooting waking the innocent children. One adult was injured as he tried to stop them, they also shot and injured 4 kids who were scampering for safety.
The relevance-seeking group also kidnapped an Italian volunteer aged 23. The Italian has been in Kenya for charity work at the children’s home. This year, the KDF and other security forces at the Kenyan Coastal region has destroyed all Alshabaab hideouts inside Boni Forest leaving them with no options other than to attack soft targets. In pursuit of the militants, Kenyan security forces have sealed all the exit and it’s just a matter of time before they are captured.
