Somalia: Kenyan army airstrike kills 100 al-Shabaab fighters


At least 100 fighters including eight top Al-Shabaab commanders have been killed in the latest battle in a town northeast of Badhade, Somalia, officials said on Friday.

Military spokesman Major Emmanuel Chirchir said the Kenyan helicopter gunships on Friday hit at al-Shabaab positions, which included 200 Al-Shabaab fighters, one of the largest concentrations of the al-Shabaab fighters, killing at least 100 fighters and destroying nine technicals and nine trucks used by the fighters.

He said the Kenyan troops advanced into the town of Badhade and Hayo in Southern Somalia, boosting their chances for a successful battle for the port of Kismayu and the town of Afmadhow, a provincial capital and a key hub of the al-Shabaab, which is one of the main ultimate targets of the operation.
