Outlawed Alshabab claims US Millitary base attack in Somalia

Outlawed militant group Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility of a terrorist attack on one of the United States military bases in Somalia.

In a statement, Al-Shabaab said: “In the early hours of Monday morning, an elite unit of soldiers… launched a daring raid on the US military base” in Baledogle.

“After breaching the perimetres of the heavily fortified base, the Mujahideen (holy fighters) stormed the military complex, engaging the crusaders in an intense firefight.”

The Baledogle base was attacked by the millitants who launched explosives at the facility and engaged the forces on duty in a fierce gunfight.

According to reports, the Baledogle base is a key site for America’s drone operations in Somalia that have mainly targeted the outlawed alshabaab.

The number of casualties is yet to be known.
