Al-Shabab Fighters Attack Somalia Kismayo Airstrip
Al-Shabab fighters on Tuesday night attacked the airstrip of the coastal seaport town of Kismayo from two different directions.
The local residents confirmed the incident.“We heard the sounds of Rocket Propelled Grenades and mortars followed by exchange of light and heavy machineguns, but I cannot verify the number of casualties” says Hassan Noor a resident in Kismayo town.
So far the officials of the semiautonomous states of Jubbaland have not given information regarding Tuesday night’s attack.
This was not be the first time for Al-Shabaab to carry out attacks on Kismayo airstrip and other significant places in the city since they were ousted from the city a year ago.
