Somali government condemns Lamu base attack

The Federal Republic of Somalia has strongly condemned the armed group al-Shabaab attack on Manda Bay airfield in Kenya on Sunday.

A press statement from the office of the President said the botched attack will not hinder joint efforts to defeat terrorism in the region.

“The Federal Government of Somalia joins the rest of the world in condemning the cowardly attack that targeted joint Kenyan and U.S forces based at Manda Bay Airfield, Kenya.” Villa Somalia’s statement said.

It added, “The failed attack from the crumbling Al Shabab terror group aimed at defense personnel and property will not hinder the joint efforts to eliminate those against the peace and stability of the region.”

Mogadishu commended the swift response by joint US and Kenyan forces during the attack in Lamu while assuring full support in the ongoing efforts to eradicate terrorism.

“The Federal Government of Somalia also commends the Kenya Defence Force and the U.S Africa Command for swiftly repulsing the attack, thus inflicting a heavy defeat on the Al Shabab terror organization.”
