At least 8 wounded in a new airstrike in Southern Somalia

At least 8 people, including the wife of Al-Shabaab commander, were reported to have been wounded in a new airstrike in Gedo region of southern Somalia on Wednesday night.

Suspected Kenyan fighter jets have carried out the air raid targeting militants in El Adde area, an Al Shabaab-controlled in the region during the night, according to the villagers.

The situation of the village has returned to normal on Thursday morning following the airstrike, which was the latest in a wave of attacks against Al Shabaab bases in Somalia.

On 15 January 2016, Al-Shabaab militants launched an attack on a Kenyan-run AMISOM army base in the town of El Adde, Somalia, the deadliest single-day attack on KDF.

Hundreds of Kenyan soldiers were killed in the attack while many captured alive by Al Shabaab, some have been executed in the past few months.

In the past, Kenyan warplanes killed dozens of civilians in Southern Somalia in airborne attacks aimed at eliminating Al-Shabaab fighters in Southern Somalia.
